A circuit preacher's buggy be- 
came mired, a wheel was left 
in the mud and temper dis- 
played. Thus John Buchtel 
missed out on founding a col- 
lege on the Cuyahoga shore. 

Since its founding, Kent State 
has been an intense rival of Ak- 
ron U. They compete for a 
"wheel" in an annual football 
game. This wheel is the only 
existing remnant of John R. 
Buchtel's ill-fated trip to Kent 
to find a site for his proposed 
university. His buggy bogged 
down in the mud on Kent's 
present campus. In the excite- 
ment, Buchtel's horse broke 
away and left bits of the car- 

riage scattered here and there. 
A wheel remained thoroughly 
wedged. It was then that Buch- 
tel decided that this site would 
never do and went on to Akron 
to found Akron University. 

The wheel, found a few years 
ago during construction of a 
new building, was turned over 
to R. E. Manchester, then dean 
of men, who had it polished and 
painted for use as a trophy for 
which the grid warriors of the 
two schools could vie. 

KSU gained permanent pos- 
session of the wheel in '54 when 
one of the most intense gridiron 
rivalries among Ohio colleges 

\)jisur\\ f y^^hti^ 

Since 1935, the former dean of men, Raymond 
E. Manchester has written his famed Saturday 
Letters. Saturday after Saturday his pen has 
poured forth these letters until now there are over 
750 of them written on every subject imaginable. 

There are few men who know more about Kent 
than this man who started as a math instructor, 
became Kent's first dean of men, and finally re- 
tired from the job he carried out so well. 

It is through the Saturday Letters of Dean 
Manchester and through the special copy he 
helped us prepare that the 1955 CHESTNUT 
BURR hopefully brings to you the story of Kent. 

To Dean Manchester we must express our un- 
dying thanks for the help and inspiration that he 
has given us. Much of the copy in this introduct- 
ory section is his, and behind it is a deep insight 
and a love for a great University. 

Gratefully we salute the man who played such 
an important role in the history of Kent State 

The Editor 

Time, toil and midnight oil went into the creation 
of Dean Manchester's well-known Saturday Letters.

The scene of Brady's leap in his flight

Somewhere among these reeds and lily pads Brady 
hid from the Indians for hours and hours after his 
85-mile life-or-death race from Sandusky to Kent. 

Curtain up! The scene is set in the rolling hills 
of Ohio, on the banks of the Cuyahoga river, in 
the shade of lovely trees, on a grant of land — this is 
Kent, and, there is more. Imagination! Glamour! 
Memories! Hope! Confidence! 

Did Evangeline go across our campus? Pro- 
fessor Packard drew a map and said, "Could be." 
Did Captain Brady run through the campus woods 
when escaping the Indians? A look at the map 
and one might say "Could be." Did the fairies 
dance back of Moulton Hall last June? Shorty 
found the fairy ring of toad stools. "Well?" Did 
a flying saucer hover over the drill field in Au- 
gust? Two strollers in Lilac Lane saw something. 
Did our winners at the Olympic games win be- 
cause they heard the echo of a Kent cheer? Did 
our men in service fight better because of their 
memories of campus scenes? 

Was Deacon Buctle tempted to cuss just a bit 
when he was stuck in the mud? Oh, no! Did the 
fraternity pledge, who spent the night in the cem- 
etery, make a few resolutions? No doubt! And 
what about books, plays, songs, pictures, ma- 
chines, inventions? Genius? The spark? The 
flash? Can it be that the heritage from the past, 
the environment of the present and the vision of 
the future motivate and stimulate? By all means 
yes! Because this is Kent!

A University carved from the wilderness with the 
strong will to survive — a great pioneering effort. 

The dress may be different but the tradition and 
spirit are typical of Kent's Campus Day. 

Yes, this is Kent. Forty-four years have passed 
since first there was a dream, a vision, a great 
shining goal. It wasn't merely a dream of land, 
bricks and stones, but one of a great school to 
serve a great people and to guide the thoughts, 
emotions and acts of all in ways leading to perma- 
nent satisfactions and enduring faith in estab- 
lished patterns of mental, moral and spiritual 

President McGilvery had the dream and made 
the blueprint for the ages. Each succeeding presi- 
dent has had the same dream and has added to 
the blueprint. Faculties and students had the 
dream and filled in the detail of the blueprint. Al- 
ways the same dream and always the same blue- 
print! For the ages! For the people! For the best 
in human endeavor! For creation, invention, per- 
fection and faith in eternal truth! 

Kent is in the realm of thought. Kent is in the 
emotions of the heart. Kent is in the faith of the 
soul. Kent is in the design for living.

bu J I McGilvr-pu 

Compare McGilvrey's blueprint with present-day Kent. 

Yes, there was a hope. A dream. And the only thing in the way ot it becoming a 
reality is the ambition of the dreamer. A slow beginning, but then watch it grow. 


Kent grew in size, spirit and standing — that could be 
felt! Kent grew with structures — that could be seen!

The class of 1914 was a promise of what was to come. 
They were few in number but large in future history. 

Fourty-four years — four decades and four! 
And, at the end of each decade a devastating world 
event. John McGilvery was President then. Pion- 
eer! Trail breaker! Hire a faculty! "But, there 
are no students." Send the faculty out to all 
places roundabout, to spread the word. "But, we 
have no chairs, tables, or desks." Make them! 
"But we have no books." Good teachers need no 
books. "But, we have no classrooms." Get a tent 
— a big tent. "But, how about grades and credits? 
Other schools won't recognize them?" We give 
our own credits. Teachers and students off to 
war! Keep building. They will be back. 

International exchange of students? I'm going 
to England and bring Oxford and Cambridge to 
Kent. And, Kent will go to England. See you 

President Winters (acting) January 1926 to 
September 1926. Alma growing up! Needs a 

President Anderson 1926-1928, Kent State col- 
lege now! Alma has a new dress (arts, college 
and style) . Must learn how to act before company. 
Walk across stage gracefully. That's how to do 
things. Goodbye, must be on my way.

As long as there is knowledge and the will to learn, education goes on. Buildings aren't necessary. 

In the beginning was the word. It grew to an 
idea, then a reality. Thanks Mr. McGilvery. 



Kent hall presents a strong, formidable structure in 1934. It is a building that is rep- 
resentative of the tradition of the KSU campus for its strength, stability and fortitude. 


The 1934 Homecoming celebration was a far cry 
from the present well-planned and organized one. 

"Where there's a will, there's a way." In spite of 
the depression, six young men managed to keep in 
school by living in a cottage on University property.

President Engleman 1928-1938. Alma, a big 
girl now. We must get things in order. Then, too, 
we must prepare for hard days ahead. Hard days, 
indeed! Depression! No money, no jobs, no gad- 
ding about! Morning and evening prayers! Bet- 
ter days coming! And, come they did, bringing 
buildings, a new college, a new degree and a new 
name. Kent State University. President McGil- 
very back. Still plugging and slugging and sing- 
ing the hit tune — "Don't Fence Me In." Years 
take toll. President Engleman says, "I must rest 
for awhile, but I shall always be near for help and 

President Leebrick 1938-1943. A new Univer- 
sity! Seeking a place among the nation's best! 
Dynamic! Decisive! War! All out for victory! 
Everyone doing a job! Bring the army to the 
campus! No time to fritter away! I'm going to 
join up! Goodbye and good luck! 

President Clark (acting) 1943-1944. It isn't 
easy to be called out of the classroom to sit in the 
president's chair. Quick adjustment to new situ- 
ations! Ability and courage to defer judgment. 
Keeping roads to the future open! Hats off to the 
man who accepted a task and successfully com- 
pleted it. 

The flag went up on I wo Jima. Kent's hopes too, 
took a rise. The end of the war was the begin- 
ning of a huge University expansion program. 



President Bowman 1944-. Of 2800 students 
only 700 left. Of 1400 men only 100 left. All stu- 
dent groups inactive! All student projects discon- 
tinued! Limited appropriations! Army cadets 
gone! Buildings and equipment out of repair! 
Never was there greater need for strength, cour- 
age and leadership. Came peace! Came the G.I. 
bill! Came the veterans — forty-five hundred 
strong! Five thousand! Six thousand! Teachers, 
books, classrooms, living quarters; in short supply. 

But President Bowman and his team brought 
order out of chaos and all things in proper place 
and perspective. New buildings all over the 
campus, new courses, new objectives and new 
enlargements, but of greatest importance, sound 
scholarship and every safeguard for student wel- 
fare! Golden years! Wonderful years! Affairs in 
Korea affected Kent. A cold war with Russia af- 
fected Kent. Political feuding and fussing affect- 
ed Kent. Inflation affected Kent. But, Kent was 
strong, virile and well prepared. Took every ob- 
stacle in stride. Today, we say "This is Kent" 
without reservations. Today, visitors exclaim. To- 
day, skeptics are silent and the predictors of 
doom move on to spots offering more encourage- 



The deluge of veterans was welcomed back and the 
need for an addition was met bv a new student union. 

These lonely halls meant strong- lines of defense. 

&v\ u 






The war was over, the fighting was done. Happy reunions! Many servicemen had learned the neces- 
sity of a college education. So back to the campus they came to enter a new phase of their lives. 

Students, students, students — where- 
ever you looked, students. 


The clothes, time and place are different, but the idea will always be the same. KSU 
graduates have, are and will spread the Kent name to all areas and corners of the world. 


UjQjnjdML. . . 

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered is the attitude 
taken by a freshman as he meets the outposts of KSU. 

When we say "This is Kent" we can't merely 
point a finger at a spot on the map, or at teachers 
in classrooms, or at students crossing a campus, or 
at piles of stones and towers of cement. Kent is 
in Cleveland, in Akron, in Europe, in Asia and in 
lands far removed from the spot located on Route 
5 in Ohio. Wherever a student goes, there goes 
Kent. Wherever an alumnus lives, there too, Kent 
resides. When people say "On the land, sea, in the 
air," they may refer to Kent; for surely of the 
many who go by land travel, by ship or by plane 
are those who live by the Kent tradition and the 
Kent philosophy. 

Were a tornado to strike down every campus 
building and scatter records clear to Hudson Bay 
the University would still be as active as ever. 
Every alumni meeting is a University activity. 
Each thought of Kent is a part of the institution. 

When a student enters he brings with him or 
her a part of the human heritage, a part of the 
world of men and women. Through four years he 
weighs, sorts, changes and enlarges his fund of 
ideas, emotions, ambitions and determinations and 
re-enters the world-at-large more able to lead and 
serve. Going, he or she takes Kent along. Each 
and all take a bit as Kent becomes more and more 
a part of the wide, wide world. 


On their way to share their learning with the world 
so that it may be richer for Kent's teachings. 

\o matter how fast the earth spins on its axis the sun still shines on a part oi KSU. 



She's five minutes late, but 
it's the BIG night, so 
he doesn't care. 



Sleepless nights were spent 
trying to meet a deadline. 

Campus Day says its one of those fun packed week- 
ends for students, with floats, songfests and dancing. 

O V^o^A (Xo|TArC|uM ... \ Wsl X^K^\Voinj 

Chorus lines, comic skits, music combos — 
Pork Barrel — only one of the many KSU activities. 

What about the Fourth Estate, the land of 
make believe, the government — for the people, of 
the people, by the people, the Greek invasion, the 
Twin bands, the Fite Team Fite, the Campus Day 
parade, the tux and the long dress, the name 
bands, the air ways, the field trips and the New 
York caravan; and the many more student 

What about them? Tops, of course! The best 
to be sure! 

From the first day — every day — today, student 
activities! That's the Kent way. Students write, 
act, govern, present with pride, discuss, debate, 
search, find, play, engage in the affairs of the 
intellect, cling to the morality codes, reaffirm 
faith in eternal verities and follow straight paths 
in the pursuit of happiness. 

Of course, there is history, always history! 
From bulletin board notices came the printed 
sheet — the Kent Stater. First a weekly; now a 

From a thin booklet (The Kentonian) came 
the Chestnut Burr. First a modest picture book; 
now a spectacular volume! 

From the impromptu stage shows, cooked up 
over night, came the University Theater with 
presentations comparable to Broadway produc- 


From small groups of fast-talking corridor poli- 
ticians came student government and a plan for 
statutes and procedures. 

From gatherings of like-minded students in 
rooms, under trees, or around tables came fraterni- 
ties and sororities — first local and now national. 

From evening dances in Moulton Hall to music 
by three students who could hit the same notes at 
least half the time, came the proms, the Top Hop 
and splendiferous affairs, featuring tails, white ties 
and dreamy, lacy creations. 

From a single-file parade of students carrying 
lanterns came the wonderful Campus Day parade. 


Yes, this is Kent. Built from a wonderful dream 
and a perfect blueprint. Years have passed and 
years will pass but what Kent was, is, and will be, 
gives substance to an epic tale about a glorious 
achievement in the human struggle for perfection 
of body, mind and soul. 

Tonight and every night, the child of the child 
of the first coed will say "God Bless Mom, God Bless 
Dad and God Bless Kent." No University could 
ask for more.

Kent — a University — association of colleges — 
community of academic departments — focus 
center of learning — inspiration fount — cross- 
roads of scholars — creator of democratic discus- 
sion — leader, guide and protector of truth. 

There is a pattern and a design. There is inter- 
change of information, joint discussion, separation 
of duties and a division of responsibilities. The 
colleges serve selected groups but jointly serve 
one objective — the personal and academic needs 
of students. 

Kent — a University — functioning efficiently 
in rendering day by day service but constantly 
broadening the horizons and planning for the 
future. Kent, a university by name and blessed 
with the virtue of universality stands in honor- 
able position among the great family of educa- 
tional institutions. 

A beautiful and inspiring setting, Kent State 

The tangible university — the city within a city, 
A semi-circle of 21 buildings sprawl across 
the 245 rolling acres of Kent's campus. 

Tools of learning, the 
symbols of education.

They appropriated the money, watched the 
building reach skyward and then went on a tour. 
Terrace Hall was only one of the projects of the 
Board of Trustees. 

Since the founding of the University this group 
of men has formed the policies which make it pos- 
sible to say, "This is Kent." 

The Board of Trustees consists of six members, 
five of whom are appointed, one each year, for a 
term of five years, by the Governor of Ohio, with 
the consent of the legislature. The sixth is the 
State Superintendent of Public Instruction. 

The past year brought approvement of a new 
women's dorm; re-birth of the idea of a park next 
to Moulton Hall; and a two-billion dollar, ten- 
year, expansion program. 

In the near future the members of the speech 
department will get a twinkle in their eyes when 
a theater and studio building is mentioned, the 
business department will want more space, the 
expanding science department will want new lab- 
oratories. The granting of these wishes will come 
only after many well thought out decisions by 
this group of men. 

Yes, the members of the Board of Trustees 
make it possible to say, "THIS IS KENT."

Few if any, trustees of Kent State University have had 
such ideal preparation and background of experience for 
this type of public service. His devotion to this public 
duty was evident from the first meeting he attended. 

Since his illness, his faithful attendance has been 
nothing short of heroic. He brought to the deliberations 
of the board a wisdom and clear thinking which are rare. 
The loss of such a member of our Board of Trustees is 

George A. Bowman 

Robert Guinther 
University Trustee 


A building is only as good as 
its architect. KSU's planner 
is President George Bowman. 
His many hours of work have 
brought him recognition as 
the first citizen of Kent. 

KSU-President George Bowman 

A university torn by ravages of international 
conflict, post-war problems and unprecedented 
growth — these crises have been met, with many 
being solved, since George Bowman took over 
the reins of KSU. 

Universities have varied segments which have 
to be united. As a compound sentence needs a 
coordinator, so Kent's coordinator takes the form 
of President Bowman. 

As the President, he is constantly faced with 
campus problems. Many are large, some are 
small, but no matter how big or how little, they 
must be solved. His views sometimes conflict with 
those of others, but a look at the past will prove 
his right to the respect of his colleagues. 

No one man can take all of the credit, but Dr. 
Bowman has added much to the story of, "This is 


It is up to Eric X. Rackham, dean of the Liberal 
Arts college, to see that students receive a general 
education covering various fields of subject matter. 

Dean Robert I. White has a big job on his hands 
to maintain the growing reputation of the pioneering 
effort of Kent college — the College of Education. 

Deans of the Colleges 

Ardyn L. Allyn, dean of Business Administration, 
must keep his college in step with the ever-changing 
and rapidly growing world of business and industry. 

Through the doorway marked Raymond Clark, Dean 
of the Graduate School, pass many a hopeful graduate 
seeking further education toward a Master's degree. 


Class scheduling and cred- 
it transcripts receive the 
attention of Charles E. 
Atkinson, Kent registrar. 

You decide to come to Kent, 
but first you must be ap- 
proved by Richard Rotzel, 
director of admissions. 

"KSU's Big Brother" is the 
nickname given to Loren 

1 LulliA , the school's di- 
rector of student advising. 


Dean of Women Margaret 
Swanson can always be de- 
pended on for just and 
understanding decisions. 

These are the active people who make Kent 
State university a smooth-running organization. 
Their time is diligently devoted to all of the 
students and their main goal is to satisfy the stu- 
dent's every need. 

From the time the student enters the Univer- 
sity until he walks out the exit, diploma in hand, 
he feels the influence of these administrators. 

Devising rules and regulations, scheduling 
classes, sending out grades, giving helpful advice 
and performing a thousand and one other services 
are all handled capably by the administrative 

Glen Nygreen, dean of men, 
always has his door open 
to all students who need 
help with their problems. 

Filling an important new 
post created this year is 
George Betts, in charge of 
public relations affairs. 

Julia YVaida, University 
editor has the job ot 
overseeing all official 
University publications. 

The man keeping the name 
of the University before 
the public is William Fish- 
er, News Bureau director. 

Publicity and Money 

Good public relations with outsiders and plen- 
ty of money to spend are both important assets of 
any university. 

Kent has a staff of efficient administrative of- 
ficials to see that the University is well supplied 
with both. The News Bureau and public relations 
director keep Kent in the public eye. The busi- 
ness manager and the comptroller handle the 

With a mile-long shopping 
list and plenty ol money 
Emil Berg, business man- 
ager keeps KSU supplied. 

The man who pulls the Uni- 
versity pursestrings and 
handles finances is Paul 
E. Beck, KSU comptroller. 


A very "special" job is 
that ot Clayton Schindler, 
coordinator of extension 
and special activities. 

If you want a job, the man 
to see is Lester Munzen- 
mayer, director of the 
Bureau of Appointments. 

Ben McGinnis is the assist- 
ant dean of men, coordi- 
nator ot veteran's affairs 
and the alumni secretarv. 

There are always a few people who work be- 
hind the scenes to carry on jobs that are vital to 
the University and students. And what could be 
more vital than the health and food services? 

Also included in this category are special ser- 
vices, aid to vets and the appointments bureau 
which not only helps find jobs for KSU students, 
but aids employers who inquire about job appli- 

Special Services 

Good health means good 
students and better work 
says Arville DeYVeese, head 
of Student Health Center. 

Students do get hungry and 
Otto W. Pedersen, head 
of Food Service, cooks up 
the menus for each meal.

Department Heads --Busy People of KSU 

A fifteen minute wait instead of ten. Why are 
they so privileged? They are department heads! 
They are in charge of the staff that transforms 
students into responsible citizens that live in and 
with their world. They are quite busy people con- 
cerned with many details and the welfare of many 

Students may think they have troubles in mak- 
ing out their schedules. Little do they realize! 
The big headache belongs to the person who sees 
to it they can have something to worry about. 
There must be enough classes at the right hours, 
which is after nine and before two. Professors are 
needed to conduct the classes. Text books, prefer- 

ably interesting ones, must be supplied. 

The departments must keep up with the latest 
developments and promote interest in their field. 
The boss must see that his staff functions smooth- 
ly. Students and professors need counseling and a 
sympathetic ear to settle their problems. 

This sounds like a pretty full job. It is! But 
that isn't all. They must also prepare lessons and 
find enough time to teach. At last we know why 
the extra five minute wait. It takes them that 
long to settle affairs and talk to enough people so 
they can make their way out of their office for 
fifty minutes. 


POLICE DEPARTMENT, left to right: Bert Veon, 
Harold Bassett, Charles Caris, Clifford Calvin, Carl 
Lindegarde, Sec. ; Earl Coleman, Chief ; Clem Rine, Sgt. ; 
Carl Coneway, Roy Ziegler, E. Baer and R. Carpo. 

University Police and Traffic Court 

Student Traffic Court members are: Ronald Jyurovat, 
Bud Mulcahey, Chief Justice; and Rosanne Modarelli. 

The long arm of the law stretches across the 
Kent State campus in the form of the University 
Police Department and the Student Traffic Court. 

Boasting a force of twelve men, the Kent State 
University "gendarmes" regulate campus traffic 
and parking. 

Two important duties of Chief Coleman's men 
are to register student-driven cars and to plan 
visitor parking space during conventions at KSU. 

The Traffic Court is an important part of the 
police department. Appointed by Student Council, 
the members of this board hear traffic violators' 
cases. The board operates on a democratic basis to 
decide the penalties. 

These organizations make the campus a safe 
and orderly community. 



Art — the combination of tal- 
ent, inspiration and meth- 
od. KSU's life class has 
them all. Talent is sup- 
plied by the students; in- 
spiration by the subjects; 
method bv the instructor. 

Talent, Toil, Temperament 

Kent has them too. Students possessing a rare 
combination of talent, inspiration and skill. These 
men and women are commonly known as artists. 
They produce good work because a deep sense of 
pride is found in all works of art. Art is more than 
a group of classes, it is a time when students have 
a chance to display their talents in productive 


Various metals are turned 
into objects of beauty and 
practicality in the machine 
shop as industrial arts ma- 
jors and minors perfect 
their skill in working with 
the different machines. 

Art For Art's Sake 

Painting, sketching, sculpturing, modeling, de- 
signing, or carving — they're all in KSU's art pro- 

Students are models, artists, designers, or 
whatever the role calls for. There are even a few 
Bohemian types thrown in. 

The "Greenwich Village" of Kent State has the 
atmosphere and lacks only garrets for the "arty" 

Jumping from six majors 
in 1947 to 130 this year, 
Kent's department of arch- 
itecture is shooting up like 
the skycrapers which its 
students will soon be de-

Prize-winning' pictures in the journalism lounge are a constant reminder to students of ths increasing impor-

J-School Will Celebrate Its 25 Year 


Paper and ink, paper and a typewriter, paper 
and presses, these are the tools of Kent State's 
School of Journalism which will celebrate its 25th 
anniversary next year — its silver anniversary. 

In spite of its youth, the school has quite a rep- 
utation in the journalism world. Its graduates are 
sought by newspapers and radio stations and for 
public relations positions throughout the country. 

Students learn to hand-set type and to print. 

Many once-in-a-Iifetime pictures develop in the depart- 
ment's student darkrooms which serve as a photography lab. 

Professor William Taylor will celebrate his 20th 
anniversary as head of the School of Journalism. 

Sixteen years ago, Murray Powers, 
managing editor of the Akron Beacon 
Journal, was asked to come and teach 
editing classes temporarily, until 
someone else could be secured. He 
did such a good job, he's still here. 


Time is precious and we try to save all we can. This 
class in the study of time and motion uses a movie 
camera to find ways of conserving motion in working. 

Students Get the Business 


^~ +L*cm 

Typists work against time for speed and accuracy, 


In University Courses 

Financial pages are scanned, knotted pieces of 
adding machine tape clutter up the floor and 
typewriters clack away. This is Kent State's 
College of Business Administration. 

Soon after entering school, the students check 
a list of twenty odd fields to pick what they hope 
will be their future work. Whether they decide on 
accounting, finance, general business, commerce- 
art, retail management, or sales management, the 
staff of the college is ready to help them choose 
the courses which will be most useful. 

Profits! Byword of modern business. How to make 
profits is an important lesson taught in accounting. 

Giving the "business" to their students is all 
in a day's work for the professors of the College 
of Business Administration. 

Founded with three main objectives: to lay a 
good foundation in liberal education, to aid the 
student in choosing a major field that suits his 
background and to train students in their special- 
ized field, the B.A. college is steadily growing. 

Due to its newness, the college lists no great 
leaders among the country's businessmen. How- 
ever, four members of the staff are listed in "Who's 
Who in America" — Drs. Kokendorff, Wilber, An- 
thony and Allyn. 

Looking into the records of the over 2000 B.A. 
graduates show that the great majority have re- 
ceived jobs, due in part to the growing reputation 
of Kent's Business College. 

Charts, graphs and lec- 
tures are all a part of 
the College of Business 
Administration program. 



It is all a part of learning. Games give children a chance to learn to partici- 
pate in groups and to follow directions carefully. At the same time it pro- 
vides a little relaxation for the pupils and teacher. 

Teacher And Student Learn Together 


In recent years a demand for efficient teachers 
has echoed and re-echoed throughout Ohio and 
the rest of the nation. Since its founding in 1912, 
KSU has been answering this call. 

Spurred on by the slogan, "The child, his cares, 
needs, and environment," the College of Education 
strives to help future teachers gain new and more 
far-reaching perspectives for training the youth of 

Actual classroom problems and practices are 
met by KSU education majors through the student 
teaching internship program, which sends future 
teachers to aid the faculty in local schools, and 
gives the students a chance to cope with real life 

Continued increase in enrollment has brought 
many problems which have been solved through 
the addition of new departments, an enlarged pro- 
fessorial staff, and the establishment of numerous 
workshops, and conferences designed to help the 
district, as well as the student educator. 

A secondary education major shows a high school art 
class how to be artistic with just paper and wire. 

A student teacher gets first-hand experience in 
learning how to get along well with the younger set.

Chemicals and test tubes— 
for centuries. Yet, Kent 

•the tools of the chemist 
State's laboratories and 

equipment are a far cry from the crude instruments 
that marked the alchemists of the Medieval period. 

Facts, Research, The Thrill of Discovery 

Whether the study of plants or of animals, 
it is science; and it is offered among the 
Kent State university's 150 science courses. 

Kent Keeps Apace Of 
The World Of Science 

The indescribable "thrill of discovery" when 
laboratory experiments yield some new fact is the 
underlying reason for the tremendous interest in 
Kent's science department. The department offers 
students a wide variety of opportunities to delve 
into the ever-changing realm of chemistry, physics 
and biology. 

In keeping with the recent trend of University 
expansion. McGilvrey hall, in cooperation with 
Goodyear research scientists, constructed a radar 
research tower on its roof. The presence of such a 
tower, while helping to make the area effectively 
prepared for the detection of enemy planes and 
missiles, affords students first-hand experience in 
learning about the growing field of radar. 

In addition to the laboratory and research 
work, there is basic background material which 
one finds in textbooks. Certain knowledge con- 
cerning formulas, theories, laws and principles 
must be acquired before experiments can bear 

Formulas must be followed to the enth degree in 
any chemical experiment lor it to be successful. 

Weights, measures and slide rules. Complicated 
motors, generators, equipment of all kinds are 

used in the physics courses at Kent, as students 
find the answers needed using these and formulas. 


Rock strata, fossils, minerals, earth formations 
are all fascinating subjects to geology students. 

There is more to the study of mathematics 
than just learning that A plus B equals C. 

Whatever the Subject, Kent Teaches It 

Music is an art and Kent 
instructors try to per- 
fect the artistry of stu- 
dent musicians. Singers 
and band and orchestra 
members, alike, get the 
best training possible. 

Students find out how they operate, mentally 
and physically, in KSU's psychology classes. 

Not Just A College; 
It Is A University 

A college becomes more than just a college — it 
becomes a university — when it starts offering a 
liberal education and wide variety of background 

Training in cooking, sewing and household 
management may be just as important in the edu- 
cation of one person as physics and chemistry 
would be to another. And there are some subjects 
that benefit the person himself no matter where 
his interests lie and what his future work is to be. 

Studying psychology and sociology, man's re- 
lationship with man and with himself, helps stu- 
dents to get along better in the world. And what 
about the arts that give pleasure to so many — 
music, painting, designing? 

Wherever the students' interests lie, Kent State 
university has a course of study for him. Kent 
has something for everyone. 

Kent's H. P. E. courses teach students how to swim, 
dance and play a good game of baseball or tennis. 

If they don't teach it, at least they 
can use their knowledge at home, is 
the philosophy of many who enroll in 
Kent State's home economics courses. 


Clinics Are Human Service Stations 

There comes a time in everyone's life when he 
needs help — help from someone besides himself. 
The clinics of Kent State university are set up to 
give this help whenever needed to whoever 
needs it. The only question they consider foolish 
is the one you don't ask. 

There are services of many kinds for people 
with many different problems. These services are 
offered through a variety of media — libraries, 
films, tapes and counseling. In fact, the University 
is the national repository of masters of all edu- 
cational programs listed in the National Tape 
Recording catalog. 

Among services offered are guidance tests, 
speech and hearing correction, perfection of skill 
in reading, counseling in problems of personal ad- 
justment and above all, the means of maintaining 
good health. 

The clinics, which provide these confidential 
services free to students, faculty and townspeople, 
also are an excellent training ground for students 
going into the field. 

Kent's Audio-Visual Aids department is one of the 
most complete and up-to-date of its kind in the U. S. 

University students make use of the library phono- 
graphs and its collection of records in many ways. 

Good speech is an important asset, particularly to 
college students. And one clinic works in this field.

Class Time Is Here Once More 

Fallen leaves, a bright sunny day, a long line 
of cars and students traipsing across campus says 
it's time for classes. In the various class buildings 
Kent Staters may learn anything from Robin- 
hood's archery techniques in warfare to Plato and 
Aristotle's theories of philosophy.

Art, Architecture, And Aviation 

Artistic on the outside, artistic on the inside, — 
this is the Arts building. Its modern lines and 
symmetry inspire art students attending classes 
here. Here industrial art majors work in the 
machine shop and architecture students busily 
draw plans of buildings of the future. And even 
aeronautics has a place here, with two airplanes 
and a glider.

They Worked Hard 
And Often Despaired 

Fall is colorful, winter is cold and 
spring is wet. Weather is a favorite 
topic of conversation at KSU. Indian 
summer lasts longer, the thermometer

if you don't have hip boots as a part of 
your spring outfit, you're sunk.

High above the stadium is the MPE building. 
7000 jam it for basketball games. Thousands crowd 
in to watch graduation exercises. Masses flock to 
it to hear noted speakers. Dances held there pack 
them in. And the MPE building, completed in 
September, 1950, has room for them all.

But Won Their Goal 
As KSU Graduates 

The long, up-hill climb is over! They 
reached the top, not as numerous as 
when they started. Lines weren't as 
long for registration and last-minute 
courses tied up the loose ends. Final 
months were a flurry of senior pictures,

their training, but the job was just be-

Low Man On the Totem Pole 

Silence reigns as Moulton Hall girls spend a 
quiet evening studying. Down the hill from the 
main campus, this freshman girls' dorm has finally 
gotten rid of its crowded conditions which have 
existed at various times, the most recent being 
last fall before Terrace Hall was finished.

"Men do not live by bread alone." How often 
have we spoken these words: Over and over again. 

Men live by environment and influence. Men 
live within intellectual formats. Men live by 
moral codes and spiritual faiths, but always the 
living must be through action — purposeful action. 

Campus activities reflect the basic urges, the 
states of mind, the desires for expression and the 
dreams of creative endeavor. The activities are 
outlets for student ambitions. At Homecoming and 
on Campus Day there are outbursts of inventive 
artistry and demonstrations of perfected skills. 
The publications prosper because of the founda- 
tional wish for thought expression. When the band 
marches across the field every student marches 
with it in spirit. Every student runs with the 
touchdown speedster and every student groans 
with suffering when the play bogs down. 

Artistic skill, clever ideas, long range planning 
and teamwork set the scene for the day's ac- 
tivities. The entire campus works hard. 

Time may mellow them, but 
the memories are fresh.

Lights, Camera, Action-As Kent Focused On 
Its Annual Short Course In Press Photography 

Kent State's 13th annual Short Course in 
Press Photography heralded the arrival of 
256 camera bugs. From across the con- 
tinent they came — California, Michigan, 
Florida, Canada. Kent became the focal 
point for the nation's cameramen. 

These photographers invaded Engleman 
Hall. The coeds were off on spring vaca- 
tion, so they missed the discovery that 
the sloppily-dressed, over-burdened with 
bulky equipment, press photographer of 
the past is no longer with us. In his place 
is a well-dressed, neat gentleman. 

A survey of the 106 press photographers 
showed that 49 had completed college, 54 
had gone through high school, and only 
three had gone no further than the 8th 

Short Course was the longest convention 
held here with delegates from so many 
different places and from such great 

Cheese-cake a la mode, served at short course shoot- 
ing sessions, was the favorite dish ot the photogs. 

"This is how it's done," said Ed Farber to informa- 

tion-seeking photographers .luring one bull session. They ^ thcm ^ ^ M worked[ short Course 

members left to KSU the rubble of a week's work. 


Photogs Invade Campus 

President Bowman opened the 1954 Short 
Course with a welcoming address. He was fol- 
lowed by the keynote speaker, Jess Gorkin, editor 
of Parade magazine. From then on, the 4-day pro- 
gram continued under the able leadership of such 
noted photographers as Barney Cowherd, best 
known for his street-corner shot titled "Main 
Street, U.S.A.;" Arthur Rothstein, technical direc- 
tor of photography for Look magazine and David 
Eisendrath Jr., technical editor of Industrial 

The highlight of the conference was the annual 
banquet at Twin Lakes Country Club. Pulitzer 
prize winner, Frank "Pappy" Noel, was the main 
speaker of the evening. Held prisoner in Korea by 
the Chinese communists for three years, he came 
home alive to tell of his experiences. 

Shutter sessions gave the photographers a 
chance to relax and shoot cheese-cake of gorgeous 
models. One outstanding subject was Miss Tina 
Glidewell, holder of the "Miss Ohio Press Pho- 
tographer of 1954" title. 

Bull sessions were held. Viewpoints were 
traded. New and old techniques were discussed. 

Kent's annual Photo Short Course has become 
nationally known. The 1954 Short Course proved 
highly successful, and like Kent itself, every year 
becomes bigger and better. 

Pictured left to right are: top, David Eisendrath 
Jr., free lance photographer; George A. Smallsreed 
Jr., Columbus Dispatch; middle, Jess Gorkin, Parade;

Dispatch and Miss Ohio Press Photographer of 1954. 

After displaying their wares, 
the manufacturers of photo- 
graphic supplies gathered 
in the Arts building for a 
question-and-answer session. 

Russians Are Fooled 
In "Transatlantic" 

Three Russian spies who mistook plans 
of a comfort station for atomic secrets 
provided the plot for the 1954 "No Time 
For Classes" production. Student-written, 
acted, directed and produced, the NTFC 
musical comedy, "Transatlantic," marked 
the 10th year for Kent State's annual all- 
student production. 

The fast-moving episode concerns a fra- 
ternity man who is given an assignment to 
go abroad in order to obtain a site suitable 
for a comfort station. Hank, who designed 
the station, is aided by interested frater- 
nity brothers. The plot becomes more 
involved when Hank's girlfriend follows 
him in disguise. 

This complication leads to another when 
the spies appear on the scene. Their error 
is discovered and they are doomed to the 
salt mines. When Hank finally realizes that 
his girl is following him, and it appears 
that no one in Europe wants a comfort 
station anyway, everyone returns home. 

Particularly impressive were the music 
and script, which could only be described 
as "professional." Words and music were 
written by Tom Wissen, Don Thompson, 
and John Wilson. The play was produced 
by Gary Banas and directed by John Mor- 
row. Nancy Wood was the choreographer. 

The cast included: Joan Arick as the 
girlfriend; Frank Merolla as Hank; Jerry 
Rice, Cal Johns and Nancy McKenna as the 
spies and John Whitmore as the waiter. 

Lamp light and a lone- 
some girl — atmosphere. 

Hank was fooled by 
the French disguise. 

Sing, my comrades; 
I am a loyal Red. 

Gay extras cavort in 
NfFC's spy-thriller. 

Cafe dancers and chorus 
set the scene for a musi- 
cal comedy of foreign in- 
trigue, complete with a 
hero, a heroine, and three 
mixed-up Russian spies. 

Student -Written, Acted, Directed; NTFC A Success 

The obliging waiter in the cafe was not obliged to 
like the joke of Hank, our traveling college hero. 

Female counterpart of Russian spies tried to use her 
charms on Hank so she could steal the secret plans. 

Some of the show's chorus girls are caught teasing 
the bartender during one of the numerous rehearsals. 

The spy trio broke into tears at the thought of be- 
ing doomed to a Russian salt mine for their mistake. 


Posing as real carny men, Dick Shaheen, Tom McCarthy, and Gene Buffo 
brought out the gambling spirit in enough carnival-goers to secure for 
Alpha Tau Omega the first place trophy in the fraternity division. 

Pennies Paved Carnival Midway 

And who would- 
n't like his pic- 
ture taken with 
a lovely model? 


Pretty girl targets for a 
powder-puff barrage was 
Moulton's winning booth. 

The ISA's balloon-shaving 
contest went over with a 
big bang at the carnival. 

Customers' big smiles 
must indicate the dice 
were rolling their way. 

Fun For Everyone 

Penny Carnival — Kent State's mardi gras — 
wild, noisy, glaring. Barkers screamed from their 
booths while students and townspeople dug deep 
into their pockets. Lined up on the midway in 
Wills gym, 24 colorful booths both Greek and 
independent, competed for top prizes. 

Dice games, dart throws, a carnival photo 
racket and a mouse race netted 73,002 pennies 
for the Blue Key and Cardinal Key Scholarship 

Pennies from heaven in the form of dough balls went whizzing toward 
three feminine targets in Delta Zeta's booth at Penny Carnival. Their 
only consolation was that they were doing it for a worthwhile cause. 

The Alpha Xi Delta's ring- 
a-leg booth attracted eager 
spectators and contestants. 


Cardinal Key members and Campus Day queen finalists formed an honor 
guard in white against the background of a beautiful spring day to 
complement the arrival of the 1954 Campus Day Queen, Sue Ann Hurd. 

Color, Song, And Dancing 
Sparked '54 Campus Day 

Colorful floats lined up behind shiny new con- 
vertibles. Band players tuned up their instru- 
ments. Paraders fell into line. And crowds min- 
gled everywhere. 

This was Campus Day at Kent, the brightest 
day of spring quarter. 

At 11 a.m. Delta Upsilon fraternity's "K" Girl 
started the festivities by painting the stone "K." 

Noontime came with an honor guard of Cardi- 
nal Key members escorting the 1954 Campus Day 
queen and her attendants to the royal throne. 

Then the highlight of the day — the long, wind- 
ing parade of multicolored floats portraying songs. 

All in honor of the Kent State campus and its 
students and faculty. 

The "K" Girl, escorted by DU's Chuck Miller, began 
the day with the traditional painting of the K-stone. 

The entrance of her royal highness, Queen Sue Hurd. 

Barefooted ballerinas frolicked around the maypole. 

"Beethoven's 5th," bottle or symphony, was the 
men's independent division winner for Stopher. 

A land version of the "Showboat" was Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon's second place winner among the fraternities. 

Lowry Hall took us back to "Toyland" as the dorm 
took first in the women's independent competition. 

Second place in the men's independent division went 
to the Vets club with the "Merrv Oldsmobile" float. 

The roaring 20's were brought to life as the Delta 
Tau Delta's won first place with "Collegiate." 

Alpha Chi Omega's trolley ran along without tracks 
as their "Trolley Song" float captured first place. 

Front campus served as an outdoor amphitheater for 
the Campus Day Songfest. Spectators sprawled on 
the sloping hillside to listen to the open-air concert. 

Songfest, once just an informal singing session, 
has now grown into a formal contest between 
various campus organizations. 

For the fourth consecutive year, Chi Omega and 
Delta Tau Delta won first place in their respective 
divisions. The Chi O's won with "Clair de Lune" 
and the Delts with "Country Fair Waltz." 

In the independent women's and men's divi- 
sions, Kappa Phi won with "The Song Is You" 
and Men's Band with "Louisiana Hayride." 


Amidst shrieks of delight from happy float and song- 
fest contestants, winners received their trophies. 

Anthony's band broke through the crowd with its 
popular "When the Saints Go Marchin' In" rendition. 

Top Band Draws Crowd 

Campus Day royalty Doris Dalitz, Queen Sue Ann 
Hurd and Marilyn Kapcar smiled for the crowd. 

Tired after Campus 
Day activities, KSU 
couples came alive in 
the evening to dance 
to the ever-popular 
music of Ray Anthony 
in an over-crowded 
MPE building. 


Water, boats, a hillside full of spectators set 
the scene for 1954 Regatta at Hudson Springs. 

Fraternity muscle men were encouraged by the crowd 
as the first man went down in their tug-of-war contest. 

1954 Rowboat Regatta 
Was Splashing Success 

"Bigger and better than ever" was the motto 
for the 1954 Rowboat Regatta, Kent's answer to 
the Poughkeepsie boat races. 

The site was Hudson Springs park, a perfect 
spot with lots of water and plenty of hillside. 

Famous personalities were called in to high- 
light the races. Emcee Joe Mulvihill, WTAM disc 
jockey, brought two singing and recording stars 
with him. University talent rounded out the show. 

A rainy morning didn't dampen the spirits of 
participants and spectators, for by noon a mile- 
long Regatta parade was heading for Hudson. At 
last the clouds broke and the sun was shining as 
the cars entered the park. 

TV cameras rolled as queen candidates paraded 
across the platform. Then they turned their lenses 
on rowers and tug-o-war men. 

The crowd shouted encouragement to their 
favorite rowers and cried in dismay when an oar 
was dropped. They groaned and grunted as tug- 
o-war men pulled and strained at the rope. 

It was a wonderful Regatta. The best yet. 

Stationed in the middle of the lake on a flag-bedecked 
float, the judges sent word back to land after each 
race announcing the winner and his rowing time. 


Taking a break between races, the crowd stretched out on the grass for a rest 
and some refreshment while enjoying the entertainment provided between events. 

Queen finalists waited on the reviewing stand for 
judging. They were Carol Hampton, Ginny Madden, 
Eleanor Bland, Betty Hasson and Marilyn Vargo. 

Into a huddle went Lin Houston, Brown's guard, 
Coach Trevor Rees and Joe Mulvihill, disc jockey, to 
call signals and to "spin" out the queen of the regatta. 

Age makes no difference when 
excitement is in the air. 

Pull, we still have a chance. 
This tug-of-war is dragging. 

Wyoma Winters, recording 
star, entertained at Regatta. 

A snack bolstered his spirit 
so he could cheer refreshed. 

The queen's trophy looked 
pretty, even in another's arms. 

The prexy and his wife 
were among Regatta fans. 

Spring Hums With 
Activity-Full Weeks 

Everything happens in Spring. It is 
then that the campus comes alive. 

An annual barrage of high school 
editors and reporters invaded Kent's 
campus for the press clinic sponsored 
by NEOSP. 

The first quartet contest put on by 
Alpha Phi Omega, gave first place 
honors to Delta Gamma and Alpha 
Tau Omega. 

To top it all off, there was a snow- 
fall in May. But this only added to 
the feverish pitch of excitement. A 
beard growing contest, political cam- 
paign, and a water show — all part of 
busy weeks. 

But everything must come to an 
end. Seniors graduate, students take 
their final exams, and the school year 

Winners in beard growing contest were Dick Shaheen 
and Paul Stokes. Gene Kestranek made sure its for real. 

Honored at MSA banquet were Tom Meinhardt, 
ATO Manhood trophy; Herb Ryan, Manchester cup. 

Sharks club members formed a huge floating cross by 
candlelight in their "Aqua-Campus" water-ballet show. 

Students made their voices in politics heard by using 
their right to vote, even if it meant a short wait.

Collegiate noses rubbed the ground as the guys 
did their best in the peanut-pushing contest. 

Local "Olympic" Champs 
Sparked May Day Relays 

Female athletes compete in one of themanyraces under 
a decided handicap of having their legs tied together. 

Spectators' expressions showed their mixed emotions 
as friend met foe in the local "olympic" contests. 

Bigger than flies, but just as slippery, balloons 
proved a hard target for the newspaper swatters. 

Girls have muscles too, as clearly shown by the 
five young ladies pulling hard in the tug-of-war. 


President Bowman Honored 
For Ten Years of Service 

The sociology award for the outstanding senior woman 
was presented to Margaret Anderson by Chi Omega. 

Students "lined up" spring work with the payment 
of fees after the final juggling of their schedules. 

Students Receive Awards 

Practically everyone received honors spring 
quarter. The most outstanding of these was the 
assembly held in honor of President Bowman's 
10th anniversary at Kent. Surprises for the Presi- 
dent included a brochure showing physical devel- 
opment of the university and unveiling the 
portrait of the President, painted by Professor 
Novotny, head of the school of art. 

153 were cited for scholarship at the 22nd an- 
nual Honors Day assembly, and trophies went to 
dorms, fraternities and sororities. 

President Bowman again figured in the picture 
when he presented decorations and trophies to dis- 
tinguished members of the Army and Air Force 

The graduates of four years of ROTC were given their long-awaited 


ns to rank of second lieutenants. 


6 50 Honored On 
Graduation Day 

The memorable day was 
here, one that the senior 
would remember the rest of 
his life. 

The day that the parents 
and friends search the sea of 
young adults seated in front 
of them, looking for their own 
son or daughter. They recog- 
nize them, smile proudly, and 
look as if they want to poke 
the person in front of them 
and say, "That's mine — the 
one whose cap is slightly 
tilted. Doesn't he look like a

Speaker Dr. S. E. Gerard

Then the conferment of de-

Students and faculty in scholarly cap and gown, well-wishing 
friends and relatives, filled the MPE building on graduation day. 

A sigh of relief 
escaped graduates 
after the ceremony. 




Shaded walks offered a cool retreat and a rolling green campus tempted 
students on their way to class. This was summer school at Kent State, 
— sizzling days and balmy nights. Green trees, green grass and multi- 
colored flowers with weekends of lazy swimming and sunning for tans. 

Workmen broiled in the hot sun as work got under way 
on constructing a new stand for the football stadium. 

Dressed for the weather, these 
practicing twists and twirls ir 

majorettes enjoyed 
the summer heat. 


Sunshine and Cokes 

The days were hot and so were the classrooms, 
but KSU summer school students managed to cool 
off between classes by sipping cokes in the Hub 
and studying their lessons outdoors. 

Besides those who stayed to add credits, there 
were the graduate students, back to work towards 
a higher degree. Changes in the administration 
were made when a new publicity post was created 
by President Bowman. 

Social and cultural life were highlighted with 
programs featuring Rise Stevens and the Cleve- 
land Summer Symphony orchestra. Speakers of 
international importance, General Carlos P. Rom- 
ulo and Dwight Cooke, added a touch of foreign 

To spark up the last few waning weeks, the 
first dog show was held at Kent State. 

And then, though the days were still hot and 
long, summer school was over. The campus rested 
for a few weeks before the rush of freshman week. 

One of the many programs offered by the University 
during the summer was the Portage County Dog show 
which attracted both thoroughbreds and dog lovers. 

Summer Term Included 
Study, Culture, Fun 

"Standing room only," was the case at the annual 
summer concert of the Cleveland Symphony orchestra 
as students and townspeople turned out in force.

Record Frosh Enrollment 
Follows Nationwide Trend 

"Hey Frosh, dink" was the delight of upperclassmen 
and the dread of new comers during Freshman week. 

Autos jammed campus curbs 
as fall registration began. 

An informal dance gave freshmen a chance to become better acquainted and see a part of college life. 


Dink-topped freshmen flocked to the Men's Physic;

program was music provided by the Kent faculty.

Kent State opened a new world to a record-

Kent's sweetheart of sweethearts, Homecoming queen Marilyn Kapcar 
and her court entered through a sabre arch of shining silver to pierce 
the human heart formed by KSU's Twin Marching bands as they played 
"A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody" during the game's halftime show. 

Cold Start But Warm Finish - Homecoming of '54 

Crisp, cold weather, shivering judges, and half-frozen students — 
this was Kent's 1954 Homecoming. 

Students, not yet thawed out from an all-night vigil working 
on house decorations, joined enthusiastic alumni to watch the 
KSU-BG clash. 

Warm coffee and hot dogs were in demand at halftime as a 
huge crowd enjoyed a halftime show featuring "Droodles" by BG 
and a heart formed by the Twin Marching bands for the introduction 
of the Homecoming queen. 

The big thrill came just at the end of the game when Kent's 
Rittichier raced 90 yards to beat BG 28-25. 

At night, an overflowing crowd of 4,000 couples danced to the 
smooth rhythmic beat of Woody Herman and his "Third Herd" in 
the men's gym. 



Sometimes it gets discouraging. 

Did it go over or didn't it? 

Homecoming queen, Marilyn Kapcar, 
was escorted bv Charles Miller. 

My goodness, it can't be true. It must be Kent's ball. Faces of the 
fans showed mixed expressions as students and townspeople thronged 
to the game, braving freezing weather to watch the Homecoming tilt. 


Couples stopped dancing just to listen and thrill 
to the jazz beat of Woody Herman's "Third Herd."

They cheered like mad as their sons did their best for "Dad" and beat

The KSU band blared forth with its own brand of 
cheering when the spectators' voices gave out. 

Huddled together on the benches beside the 
football field, sat proud but rain-soaked fathers 
of the KSU football team. Each wore his son's 
number printed on a huge cardboard plaque on 
his back. 

To celebrate the occasion, the band put on a 
special show during halftime ending up in grand 
style by spelling out the word, "Dad". But the 
finishing touch was supplied by the sons them-

ville football fans turned out to cheer on their 
favorite. Although plans didn't materialize so that 
Kent students could make the long trip, spirit was 
still high on the home front with students travel- 
ing to the bowl game via their radios. 

"Swabbies" clear the 
deck of water for a 
muddy gridiron clash. 

The "Messiah", an annual Christmas presentation, featured the"150-member 
Oratorio Guild and KSU's symphony orchestra. Four professional soloists 
highlighted the occasion which was open to the public free of any charge. 

Stopher Hall men took part in the Christmas spirit 
by giving a party for the underprivileged children. 

Christmas is rich with the spirit of charity. 
Charity is defined as "loving all men as brothers 
because they are sons of God." Gifts in the name 
of charity are not important solely for the material 
value; they are greatly enhanced by the acts of 
kindness and thoughtfulness they symbolize. 

Christmas is rich in tradition. Tradition that 
becomes more meaningful as it mellows with age. 
The caroling, midnight services, the tree and the 
spirit behind the gifts mean even more, knowing 
that it has gone on for centuries. 

Kent does her part at Christmas to provide a 
taste of the Christmas spirit for the students and 
faculty before they leave on their long-awaited 
vacation. Parties and dinners, decorations and 
gifts for the underprivileged show that Kent tries 
to make it a merry Christmas for all. 


Numerous Events Spark 
Fall Quarter Activity 

Not always capturing headlines, but neverthe- 
less important in campus life, Fall quarter events 
included speakers, plays, campus changes and 
improvements and a host of social activities. 

Chilled but loyal students huddled in the un- 
completed football stands then under construc- 
tion. Campus politics absorbed many students' 
time and work as elections drew near. "Jaywalk- 
ers" were discouraged from their practices when 
a new traffic light was installed at Terrace and 
Portage drives. 

Dr. S. E. Gerald Priestly, British historian and 
author, spoke on the world situation. At the an- 
nual Presidents' banquet, James L. Wick was the 

The Christmas spirit prevailed as the Oratorio 
Guild and the KSU symphony orchestra combined 
to present "The Messiah." "Night Must Fall" and 
"Justice" were University theater productions of 
the quarter. 

One of the biggest, all-out political campaigns Kent 
had seen on the campus was the rip-roaring rally 
between B-G and Nu-K, complete with calliope. 

Construction was completed on the new stadium stands before the last few games of the season were played.

Planning an extensive building program, one of the structures started early in the year was the Training school. 

Expansion — From Buildings To Water Coolers 

Expansion was the keynote of the autumn 
quarter at KSU. Kent State University Training 
school began its rise from the mud and water 
where excavation began. Work continued on the 
new football stands which had been started dur- 
ing the summer. While the Training school was 

slowly rising from the Summit street tract, a 
radar experimental station appeared on the sky- 
line atop McGilvrey hall. All improvements were 
not of a mammoth variety as a small but mighty 
water cooler appeared as a pleasant surprise in 
Kent hall.

Winter Events 

Alpha Phi's "Salute to George M. Cohen" won the 
critics' top praise in the sorority competition. 

Hilarity reigned as Stopher made poor "Willie" S. 
turn over in his grave with a take-off on Caesar. 

Animated creatures were the center of attraction 
as Moulton hall presented "Swinging On A Star." 

From Caesar to Shane 
Featured at Pork Barrel 

A packed house witnessed another annual Pork 
Barrel on February 11-12; sponsored by AWS and 
MSA. Organized by Pat Barber and Jerry Hayes, 
co-chairmen, Pork Barrel was comprised of fra- 
ternities, sororities and independent groups on 
campus. Taking first place honors for the third 
straight year in the fraternity division was Delta 
Upsilon. The audience was taken on a make-be- 
lieve trip to the Orient by a skit entitled "Cool 
Saki — Goes to the Orient." A touch of history was 
added by "Is This Your Life Julius?" and "Drums 
Along the Cuyahoga." 

An African setting was the scene for "Innova- 
tions in Bongo." It appeared that "travel" played 
an important role in the 1955 Pork Barrel theme, 
and "Drane" was no exception; it was built around 
a western scene. 

Music also played a predominant part in Pork 
Barrel in the form of "A Salute to George M. Co- 
hen, "A Toast to America," and "Swinging on a 
Star." Between acts, the audience was entertain- 
ed by various musical, pantomime and comedy 
skits. The general response to Pork Barrel 1955 
was very favorable as was shown by the attend- 
ance and the applause. Acting as emcees for both 
nights of Pork Barrel were Bob Williams and Jack

Following the tradition begun in the '30's by 
their predecessors, Alpha Phi entertained the ac- 
tive Greeks at the annual All-Greek formal, Feb- 
ruary 18th, 1955. The setting for the gala occasion 
was Meyers Lake, Canton, with Charlie Pickens 
and his orchestra furnishing the music. As the 
couples gathered for the dance, they saw the ball- 
room decorated with the colorful banners of their 
fraternities and sororities. The friendly atmos- 
phere of dancing and talking put aside the tradi- 
tional competition of the Greek world. Dancing 
continued until midnight, and at the conclusion, 
the happy couples left the All-Greek until another 

Fountain lights continued to change colors as Alpha 
Phi pledges were introduced to the rest of the Greeks. 

Greeks Pack Meyers Lake for Apha Phi-Sponsored Dance 

Charlie Pickens and his orchestra provided the tempo for the 
Greeks trying out the dance floor. Others just relaxed and took ad- 
vantage of the chairs which had been put there for the foot-weary. 


The Alpha Phi's under the direction of Ann Lee Metcalf sang out with 
melodic tones to their brother fraternity Sigma Nu at the All Greek. 

Alpha Phi Pledges 
Meet Other Greeks 

Intermission found the Phis in the limelight, as 
President Marlene Hallock welcomed the Greeks 
and their dates. Alpha Phi actives formed a court 
through which nine girls who became members 
since last year's dance and fifteen new pledges 
walked as they were introduced to the Greeks of 
the campus. As each was presented she received 
a rose from Carol Evans, social chairman. Actives 
and pledges joined to serenade those attending. 
In return, Sigma Nu, their brothers, sang to the 
new members. 

Marlene Hallock, president of Alpha Phi introduced 
another pledge as the rest of the sorority watched. 

The crowd stood entranced by the "hot trumpet" of Ralph Marterie, 
one of the top bandleaders in the country, as he played a top hit. 

A "cosy" atmosphere 
pervaded the evening 
of dancing to Marterie. 

Music for easy lis- 
tening is played for 
Military Ball guests. 

A Splashing Fountain 
And Sparkling Music 

The lights dimmed, the fountain began to spar- 
kle and one of the top bands in the nation began 
to play as the University's biggest and most spec- 
tacular and dramatic social event of the year got 

The seventh annual Military Ball replaced the 
abandoned Top Hop as the event to look forward 
to on the year's social calendar. 

Dancing to the music of Ralph Marterie and 
his downbeat orchestra, the student body and 
members of both the Army and Air Force ROTC 
units took adequate advantage of the smooth 
dance music. 

Intermission ceremonies were highlighted by 
the sabre-arched procession of the queen and her 
royal crowning in front of the bandstand. Picked 
through popular vote of the Cadet Corps, the 
queen and her two attendants received flowers 
and gifts from campus organizations and then 
left the spotlight escorted by the Corps, Wing and 
Regimental commanders, back through the sabre

Twirp Night 

Many activities constituted the social life of 
the University during Winter quarter. Two of 
these activities were the Jazz club and Twirp 

The Jazz Club is a new organization and is 
based on the ever-increasing popularity of modern 
jazz. The club grew very quickly and now has a 
membership which exceeds 100. Its influence 
spread over the campus when it had Teddy Charles 
and his jazz combo to play for Twirp Night. 

Twirp Night was quite a change from the us- 
ual procedure. The coeds opened doors, lighted 
cigarettes and carried books for the men. This was 
the system of reverse etiquette for Twirp Day. 
The day was highlighted with the jazz concert 
held at night. The feature of this concert was the 
crowning of the Twirp King who was selected 
from candidates nominated by the women's dormi- 
tories and sororities. 

A good-sized crowd turned out for KSU's first jazz 
concert that provided the evening entertainment for 
Twirp Day and to pick the Twirp Kirigfrom Contestants. 

The Teddy Charles Quartet really 
for the students. That's Charles

Frank Torok better known as "Earth Angel" received 
his trophy as Twirp King during the intermission.

from various organizations and sororities during intermission time. 

The University Social Committee made its sec- 
ond annual contribution of the year to the KSU 
campus in the form of Eddie Grady and his 14- 
piece band, The Commanders playing for the Top 

Miss Mary Ann Bamberger, Miss Kent State, 
and her attendants were presented at intermission 
time. Aside from the well-known "Elephant Tan- 
go", the Commanders offered a great variety, both 
in talent and tempo of music. Eddie Grady's tech- 
nique on the drums was, without question, super- 
ior. Up through 1953, the Top Hop has been held 
in the form of a dance. After poor attendance for 
three years in succession, the Social Committee 
decided to try something new. Thus it became a 
concert in 1954 and 1955.

The Commanders and Eddie Grady show

the limelight in the pop records field. 


Winter — Providing Fun 
And Activities Galore 

At one time Winter quarter was considered a 
"dead" quarter. But after the 1954 activity- 
packed term, skeptics took a second look and 
changed their attitude. There was the highly 
successful Pork Barrel, the annual Snowball 
formal, Military Ball, Jazz concert and various 
fraternity and sorority winter formals. There 
were snowball fights in front of the Union and 
snowmen built in front of dorms. Of course, 
there were the 3-foot drifts to trudge through, 
not to mention the blizzards that started on Fri- 
day afternoons and seemed to last all weekend 
ruining many well-laid plans. Dead? Every 
week was filled with work, play and some rest 
in order to face the busy week-end ahead. 

Winter quarter was active — playtime 
on Kent's hills — quartet singing contest, 
Collegiates won — a special election for 
Miss KSU and a penny collection for the 
Dukeof Kent, ThetaChi's Joseph Kainrad. 

During Winter quarter the bloodmobile once again visited the campus 
and the students responded by more than fulfilling the high quota. 




Chestnut Burr Queen 



Alpha Phi 

From a field of sixty contestants it is hard to 
choose one as most outstanding, but this the 
judges did and came up with Miss Mikelann Mur- 
phy as the 1955 Chestnut Burr queen. Lovely 
Miss Murphy is a freshman from Kent and is a 
member of Alpha Phi sorority. The honey blond, 
blue-eyed Mikelann is majoring in home econom- 
ics and business. She is a member of Booster club, 
Home Ec club and AWS.

The 1955 Chestnut Burr Salutes 
To The Outstanding Seniors 

Every year, it is the privilege of the Chestnut 
Burr to pick several graduating seniors which the 
editorial staff feels are outstanding seniors. 

They must have fulfilled the necessary re- 
quirements — scholarship, activities, service to 
the University and all around ability. But it is a 

difficult task. Only a limited number can be 
picked from so large a group and those pictured 
here in the yearbook are the ones the Burr feels 
to be the most qualified, though many others are 
just as outstanding. These are The Seniors. These 
the Burr Salutes.

Student Government 

Protested elections, rejuvenated political par- 
ties, a new constitution and questionable political 
practices were part of Student Government's con- 
siderations this year. 

Highlighted by the best political campaigns 
Kent has seen, complete with cake, cider and cal- 
liopes, the fall election produced a disappointing 
17 per cent vote.

The hands of the clock said it was 4 p.m., the 
gavel rapped for attention and all was quiet. An- 
other Student Council meeting was underway. 

Student Council is a government organization, 
elected by and democratically representing the 
student body. Its purpose is to provide an instru- 
ment which makes it possible for all students to 
voice their opinions in any program which would 
make Kent a better university. 

Some of the biggest problems of the year came 
during Fall quarter. Following election of class 
officers and Frosh Student Council representa- 
tives, a protest was lodged by a political party 
against four mistakes on the ballot. Council ac- 
cepted three of these as valid. The fourth gave the 
High Court its first case. Soon after, the discrim- 
ination of local merchants against Negroes created 
another problem which required Council's atten-

For the first time in the history of the Blue 
and Gold party, they came out on the short end 
of a ballot count in the Fall elections. This car- 
ried the political change over from the national 
scene to the campus. 

BG political party made its first appearance on 
campus in 1936, as the University's first political 
party, only to disband four years later in favor of 
an all-Greek party. 1947 gave birth to a powerful 
political force which, until last Fall, never lost an 

The party platform has always been "better 
campus politics through placement of capable in- 
dividuals." They coin this statement in their cam- 
paign slogan, "BG for better government."

Nu-K Political Party 

Xu-K political party officers are, left to right: 
Joseph Franko, Pres. ; Elaine Kovalchik, Sec; Jim 
McCarthy, Vice Pres.; and Xick Georgianni, Pres. 

After being completely rolled over in the 1953 
election, Nu-K finally saw the handwriting on the 
wall and became the true Nu-Kent party in the 
1954 Fall elections. 

The acquisition of Alpha Phi, excellent coop- 
eration and a clever campaign were all major 
factors in the rejuvenation of the party. A tightly 
knit organization of eleven fraternities and soror- 
ities, Nu-K believes that politics is everyone's job. 

Convinced that the independent student is not 
sufficiently represented on campus, the Nu-K con- 
stitution states that they will attempt to remedy 
this situation by choosing candidates outside of 
the party. 

Firmly entrenching itself in politics on the 
Kent campus with their 1954 victory, Nu-K pre- 
pared to move forward "for the good of the party."

Men's Student Association 

Men's Student Association, composed of all 
male students on the KSU campus, is formed 
around four basic principles: leadership, charac- 
ter, scholarship and service. 

Pork Barrel, co-sponsored by MSA and AWS, is 
a Winter Quarter event which is one of the top 
affairs of the scholastic year. The association also 
sponsors the annual Beard Growing Contest, the 
Senior Men's Banquet and the President's 

Its executive council also initiated a success- 
ful series of week-end dances in co-operation with 
the Student Union. 

MSA officers are: Dan Pat- 
ridge, Treas. ; Myron Grossman, 
Pres., Ed Menger, Sec. ; and Xick 
Giorgianni, Vice Pres. 


Women students at Kent State University have 
their own governing body — Association of Women 

When a coed pays her university fees she auto- 
matically becomes a member of AWS. However, 
this does not mean that when AWS holds a meet- 
ing, all women students attend. On the contrary, 
representatives from each dorm, each class and a 
few organizations, like Pan Hellenic, are chosen by 
the coeds themselves to voice their opinions. 

Through its executive board, AWS has legisla- 
tive power on all matters pertaining to the rules 
and regulations for University women. Interdor- 
mitory council, the judicial branch of AWS, along 
with the house council of each dormitory, enforces 
the regulations set up by the executive board. 

AWS sponsors parties for off-campus women, a 
reception for commuters and the senior women's

There are independents, independent independ- 
ents and organized independents. The members of 
ISA can be classified in the last group. 

Independent Student's Association was found- 
ed so that the unaffiliated students on campus 
could have a social organization. 

During the year, ISA asked the permission of 
Student Council to operate a check-cashing service 
in the Student Union. The idea "caught on" and 
has now become one of the most valuable services 
being performed on campus. 

The organization "shaved" their way to first 
place in Penny Carnival with a decorative barber- 
shop stand. Other activities included participation 
in Campus Day and Rowboat Regatta. 

ISA, left to right: row 1: Suzanne Reynolds, Eliza- 
beth Suebner, Carol Raymond, Shirley Selzer, Margie

Louise Saunders, George Liviola, Shirley Hartzell, 
Dave Walters, Marian Hartman and Don Pritchard. 
Any student can join if he doesn't wish to go Greek. 


Booster Club 

"Keep it alive with number 5." "Put the Zips 
in a fix with number 6." "Get a bowl date with 
number 8." Thus, KSU's Booster Club did what 
their name indicates — helped boost campus ath- 
letic spirit. 

Under new leadership, this group put its pro- 
verbial "foot down" and demanded that represent- 
ative groups either "show up for meetings" or 
"get out of the organization." The response was 
overwhelming — more groups were 100 per cent 
paid up members than ever before, representatives 
attended meetings regularly and spirit on campus 

Plans for a mass migration to the Bowl game 
and numerous attempts for a card show fell 
through, but the students couldn't fail to be aware 
that there was such a thing as a Booster club. 

Booster club officers are, left to right: Dave 
Habeger, Treas. ; Richard Edwards, Pres.; Mimi 
Einhouse, Sec; and James Laing, group advisor.

members kept student spirit high through the year. 


A Fifteen Minute Show Doesn't Tell the Whole Story 

Spectators see Kent State University's Twin 
Marching Bands snap out on the field, work out 
the routine of a show, play the Alma Mater and 
march off. The appearance lasts up to 15 minutes 
which doesn't seem like a very long time but for 
that length of time, or even less, it takes quite a 
bit of work and time on the part of many 

The idea of the show must be thought up and 
formations worked out and music chosen for the 
performance. The music must be played until it 
is known well enough to be played while march- 
ing. That's no small task. The show must be 

walked through, marched through and finally 
done with music until it is letter perfect. At the 
beginning of the season the band works perhaps 
the hardest to get the musicians marching, think- 
ing and playing together; for each new season 
brings a partially new band and it has a tradition 
to uphold, that of a colorful and unique show, syn- 
chronizing precision movements with good band 
music. And that's quite a tradition. 

Individually the band members practice more 
to smooth up rough spots in the music and they 
are responsible for the care and appearance of 
their uniforms and instruments. 

A Cleveland sports broadcaster called them the 
greatest band he had ever seen. Others have said 

that they were "best by a mile." To us, they're 
known as the Kent State Twin Marching Bands. 


The attraction of the front line has something to dc 
with composition, not exactly ol the musical kind 

Music and Marching 
Just to Entertain You 

A lot of work goes into putting on the show but 
even for the work the show still may not be suc- 
cessful. The weather is a very important element. 
The intricate steps and routines are hampered by 
slippery footing. 

Instruments go out of tune in different temper- 
atures. They don't all go sharp or flat — which 
would be a little help. The musician must play it 
in tune. Why do they go through all this? "For 
your entertainment!" 

Some last minute rallying for the football team 
as the band marches down in the snake dance "S". 

Precision in synchronization, colorful uniforms in 
a pleasing formation make up the Twin Band's show. 

Some of the formations have a very practical counter- 
part; this is to help with the United Fund Drive.

tines and boots. Get out the music that has longer 
hair and the music stands and chairs. Their prac- 
tice room is now in a building, the third floor of 
Merrill hall, not outdoors on the football field. 
There have been some changes made. 

The 70 piece band of student musicians is di- 
rected by Roy D. Metcalf. The high spot of the 
year is the annual winter concert. Music com- 
bined with choreography makes an interesting 
evening's entertainment. An education lacking in 
recognition and some knowledge of the works of 
the great masters would be a scanty education 
indeed. An understanding and an appreciation of 
the fine arts makes a truly intelligent man or 

The concert band is known for being versatile. 
At Campus Day the Twin Marching Bands go into 
action as they lead the parade. They unite as the 
Concert Band and play an outdoor concert. 

Webster's dictionary defines ma- 
drigal as an unaccompanied sing- 
ing of a poem in a musical setting 
of five or six parts. 

At KSU the members of this or- 
ganization are fifteen selected sing- 
ers from the larger Kent choir. 
During Winter quarter the madri- 
gals appeared before the North 
Central Division of the Music Edu- 
cators National Conference and the 
State Convention of the American 
Association of University Women 
of Ohio. 

The Kent choir is a group of 
sixty students. During the year 
they appear in many cities in 
Northeastern Ohio. Campus ap- 
pearances included the annual 
home concert in March, the annual 
performance of the "Messiah," the 
Haydn Passion during Holy Week 
and the Vaughan-Williams Festi- 

Both the Madrigal singers and 
the choir are directed by Robert 

KSU madrigals, attired in their robes, are ready to 
perform another concert of unaccompanied singing. 

Choir and Madrigal 

Over fifty voices strong, the KSU choir is well 
known for their fine singing performances. They travel 

widely on tours to various cities in Ohio and to other 
states, each vear, taking the name of Kent with them. 


It takes practice, practice and more practice. It 
takes perseverance, patience and playing ability. 
On a beautiful day that is perfect for a long walk, 

you don't go. Is all the sacrifice worth it.-' It you 
iove music for the sake of music, that's all the 
pleasure you need. A little applause helps, too. 

Sweet Strings Blended with Brass and Woodwind 

Music is composed of brass and woodwinds, notes in a 
certain rhvthm, beats and rests and key signatures. 

The flowing melody of strings added to brass, 
woodwind and percussion makes the orchestra 
come alive with a brilliance and vibrancy of tone 
which could only come from stringed instruments. 
They enhance the sound of the brass by giving it 
a sweet lilting quality; they blend with the wood- 
winds; they become defined by the percussion. All 
of that is Kent's Civic Orchestra. 

The orchestra is by and for the pleasure of the 
students and adults. For "music hath charms to 
soothe" the book-weary. In addition to the regular 
concert, the band presents a May Day concert and 
Christmas wouldn't seem complete without the 
Messiah, which combines vocal and instrumental 
sounds in a beautiful production. 

The orchestra is directed by Louis P. Krch, who 
also interviews and auditions prospective musi- 
cians for positions in the orchestra. 


Death of a Salesman 

Bill Feaster and Phyllis Elliot provided a fine 
spark for a spectacular cast with their lead work 
in Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman." 

Wallace MacLaren and Cal Johns, as Biff and 
Happy Loman, portrayed their parts with deep 
understanding and restraint. 

The four-night run, April 12-15, established the 
fact that the University Theater can be big time. 

"Death" is a psychological study of a salesman 
and his futile attempts to succeed in life. Believing 
that he can only be successful if he is well liked, 
Willy bases all his hopes on this idea, but in vain. 
Incompetency causes him to lose his job, making 
him decide the only worthwhile thing he can do is 
to die and leave his insurance money to Biff. 

Walt Pierce, Barbara Curtis, John Morrow, 
Ann Morrow, John Lioce, Norma Lou Home, 
Diane Bacon and Tom Good handled other parts 
with finesse. 

Director Earl Curtis and technical director, 
Howard Becknell, combined their talents to give 
excellent fluiditv to the moods of the show. 

His life muddled, his family disheartened and his job 
gone, Willy Loman returns home unexpectedly onh 

to realize that this is truly the beginning of the end. 

Willy is almost happy again, as his wife comforts 
him and his day dreams give him renewed confidence. 

Biff finally sees tht 
plain things to Wi 

jht, but when he tries to ex- 
his father sets very anerv.

The Rivals 

The eighteenth century came to Kent when 
"The Rivals" was presented in early March. 

The play takes place in Bath, England, in 
1775. In many respects it resembled an earlier 
theatre production, "The Importance of Being Ear- 

Barbara Goedicke followed up her successful 
role in "The Crucible." Roger Pae was very ef- 
fective in his portrayal of the male interest. Larry 
Bahler did much to cement his place in KSU dra- 
matics and John Morrow's portrayal was the high- 
light of his career. Joy Goodman's first role 
opened a bright stage future for the promising 

Packed houses greeted one of KSU's most hilarious 
shows of the year, Richard Sheridan's, "The Rivals".

WKSU-FM Hits Air Waves for Fifth Year at Kent 

Proving that three heads are better than one, 
WKSU staff members Bob Hagen, Mary Lou Easley 
and Louis Paskoff confer on program selections. 


About twenty years ago, Professor G. Harry 
Wright initiated some radio courses into the 
speech curriculum at Kent State University. Five 
years later a radio "workshop" evolved, and the 
University was in the broadcast business; cooper- 
ating with local commercial radio stations. 

October 1950, radio station WKSU-FM was 
born. It is an educational station, licensed by the 
Federal Communications Commission and is a 
member of the National Association of Education 
Broadcasters. Within its walls, future radio per- 
sonnel are trained through classroom study and 
actual experience. 

Illustrative of the variety of radio shows presented 
3y WKSU is the radio station interview show with Bob 
Vlorgova, Mike Bowden, Stu Giller and CeattaO'Sako. 

Phil Harper sets a new record while Ken 
Speck tapes the results for posterity. 

Kent's Voice" 

Under the program directorship 
of Tom Colson, in the Fall quarter 
of 1955 and Myron Gorssman dur- 
ing Winter quarter, "the Commun- 
ity Voice of Kent State University" 
— and Portage County's only radio 
outlet — has continued to follow its 
ultimate policy: the transmission 
of programs of "entertaining, edu- 
cational and cultural value." 

Joe Mills gives 
his listeners all 
the latest news. 

Members of the radio staff discuss upcoming radio programs as the pho- 
tographer catches one rare time when there is any relaxing at WKSU.

wish to attend any broadcast of the university-operated radio station. 


An anniversary issue honoring President 
Bowman was one of the highlights of a high- 
ly fruitful quarter for Stater Editor Bill 
Freeman and Managing Editor Sue Leick. 
For his attacks on the weaknesses in stu- 
dent government, Freeman was recognized 
for conducting the best campaign for 
campus betterment during the 1953-54. 


Something new in the way of a campus 
publication was undertaken during the sum- 
mer when Tom Duke, serving his internship, 
turned out the Summer Bulletin in place of 
the Stater. Working as both editor and 
business manager, Duke performed all oper- 
ationsof thenewspaper almost single-handed. 


Refusal of a Kent restaurant owner to 
serve several Negro alumni on Homecoming 
Day stirred an anti-discrimination move- 
ment on the KSU campus Fall quarter. Car- 
rying the ball for the student publication 
were Larry Carpenter, editor and Bill Mil- 
ler, managing editor assisted by Dick 
Fedosh, business manager. Together they 
set a record for the most Staters in one 
quarter. Politics again slipped into the 


Winter quarter, with the ultimate result 
that Stater Editor Bill Caddey and Man- 
aging Editor Sue Leick campaigned for the 
abolishment of campus politics altogether. 
They attributed their policy to petty bick- 
ering between the two major political par- 
ties and to lack of interest on the part of 
the student body of the University. They 
were aided by Ray Mervar, business man-

The Daily Kent Stater — Student Newspaper 

Getting out a college newspaper every day, 
Tuesday through Friday, can be a terrible grind, 
filled with "hurry" and "pressure" from start to 
finish — made doubly difficult because staff mem- 
bers must combine production with their regular 

Eut students working on the Kent Stater met 
these difficulties with their usual vigor, and got 
out a paper of which the entire University was 
proud. The Staters news columns kept students 
and faculty constantly informed as to what was 

going on around the campus community; its edi- 
torial columns kept them alert to various evils 
that developed; and its feature columns kept them 

Staff members ran up against a lot of head- 
aches, to be sure. But they were rewarded with 
many hours of fun. Although it is not limited to 
journalism students, the Stater gives journalism 
majors practical laboratory experience to better 
prepare them for the day when they'll be working 
on big-time newspapers. 

Seated around the "horseshoe" is the human machin- 
ery that makes up the staff of KSU's daily newspaper: 

copy writers, news editors, sports reporters, photog- 
raphers, leg men, advertising men and the bosses.

1955 Chestnut Burr 

Another year, another Burr. That's easier said 
than done. There is much more to it than just 
that. First, there is constant and unceasing work 
— over 7000 manhours of work by the staff mem- 
bers. All-night sessions before deadlines, gallons 
of coffee and cokes to keep awake. Foregoing 
other pleasures to make the editor's dream become 
a reality. 

The editor with the dream was Don Shook. 
He held confusion to a minimum by keeping the 
staff well supplied with work and the publisher 
supplied with completed copy — or at least 

With an eye to the clock, the staff worked fe- 
verishly to meet the deadlines and get out the 
best yearbook ever.

Chestnut Burr Business Staff 

Handling finances, selling advertising and 
keeping the books in order are only a part of the 
job of the Chestnut Burr Business staff. Headed 
by the business manager, Michael P. Beluscak, a 
staff of eight traveled to industries and businesses 
in Kent and nearby cities and towns to secure 
advertisers for the yearbook. Although financed 
chiefly through University funds, the Burr needs 
to sell space to produce a good book. 

This staff is also supposed to handle the selling 

of space to campus groups. It is their job to con- 
tact the groups, find out how much space they 
want and then the editorial staff takes over — 
scheduling and taking pictures of the organiza- 
tions and writing copy for their pages. Later the 
business staff again steps in to bill the organiza- 

Money is essential in producing a top-notch 
yearbook, thus the more efficient the business 
staff is, the easier it is for the editorial staff. 

Advisor to Publications 

A busy man, and justly so, is Dario Politella, 
advisor to all student publications. Interrupted in 
his career at Kent by a stint in the Korean war, 
Mr. Politella has been back on the job for three 

To him come all the problems and headaches 
in printing the Daily Kent Stater and in produc- 
ing the yearbook. Sometimes policy is questioned, 
and in the case of complaints, he is the man who 
must answer them along with the editors, either 
explaining why the editors were wrong, or back- 
ing them all the way. 

The work submerges into a pile of page proofs 
or copy to be checked for spelling errors, incor- 
rect facts and style violations. 

It is perhaps a thankless job for the advisor, 
but without him, publications would have a hard

Reserve Officers Training Corps came to KSU 
in 1947 through a request of the Board of Trustees 
and the approval of the United States Army. The 
success of the program helped decide the Univer- 
sity to request an Air-Force unit at Kent in 1951. 

The purpose of the ROTC is to select and train 
qualified students to serve as officers in our armed 

Neither of the programs guarantees a commis- 
sion, but they prepare their members for one if 
they meet the requirements upon graduation. 

Military Activities 


Outdoor Drill 

Drill is a part of the training program for 
ROTC students. It is aimed at helping the 
individual student develop his qualities of 
leadership, the qualities which he will 
need as an officer in the armed forces or 
as a civilian in private enterprise. 

Drill periods, or so-called "Corps Hours," 
come twice a week at noontime during 
Fall and Spring quarters. The Corps also 
participates in such ceremonies as the 
Armed Forces Day Parade, Memorial Day 
Parade, Federal Inspection and others. 


The eye of the inspecting officer doesn't 
miss a thing. He catches every spot of dust 
on the gun, every wrinkle in the uniform. 

Uniform lines of uniformed men stand at at- 
tention on the Commons during ceremonies 
honoring armed forces veterans of all wars. 

Glen Nygreen, dean of men, along with mili- 
tary commanders, address ROTC students at 
one of the many ceremonies thev attend. 

Variety of Courses 
Offered In ROTC 

The Reserve Officers Training 
Corps was started at Kent State uni- 
versity in 1947. To select and train 
qualified men to serve as officers in 
either the Army or Air Force is the 
main purpose of the ROTC program 
here at Kent. 

American military history, indiv- 
idual weapons, drill, command and 
organization of the Army are part of 
the various subjects studied in Army 
ROTC. Global geography, the history 
of aviation and the elements of aerial 
warfare are included in the Air Force 

Those qualified cadets entering the 
Advanced Course of Air Force ROTC 
study military laws, principles of 
flight, aircraft engines and other 
topics related to Air Force operations. 
Advanced Course Army ROTC cadets 
study the mission and functions of 
the arms and services, communica- 
tions, army operations, and similar 

Four honorary military fraternities 
are among the many extracurricular 
activities that a cadet may participate 
in. These help to maintain brother- 
hood in the corp and to present a 
challenge to the men. 

"Salute" is the order given by the 
commanding officer as the staff re- 
ports at the annual Vets Day ceremony. 

Learning how to fire a rifle is only 
one of many subjects that is taken up in 
the Advanced Army ROTC classrooms. 

Studying the airplane model is just 
part of the training during the lour 
years by these future Air Force men. 

ROTC Sponsors: Josephine Martino, 
Colonel; Shirley Gwaltney, Lieutenant 
Colonel; Patricia Moran, Major; Rose- 
marie Perkowski, Major; Janice Alls- 
house, Major; Elizabeth Wylie, Major; 
and Ann Kratzer, Lieutenant Colonel. 

Pershing Rifles 

Mock battles, drill meets, and social events 
are part of the makeup of any military organiza- 
tion. And the Kent State company of the Pershing 
Rifles do their share to maintain a standard of 
excellence in these categories. 

First organized at KSU on October 29, 1949, 
the enrollment has increased to a total of 60 mem- 
bers. In 1951, members of the Air Force ROTC 
were admitted to membership. 

The fundamental purpose of the group is to 
give basic ROTC students a background for pro- 
ficiency in drill and leadership. By utilizing tact- 
ical information and tactical field problems, the 

organization is able to give its members an idea of 
modern warfare. 

Membership in the Pershing Rifles is not all 
work and no play. The group elects an honorary 
sponsor every year. They also take an active part 
in the annual ROTC Military Ball and participate 
in flag raising ceremonies at University functions. 

A blue and white cord worn over the left 
shoulder signifies a member of the Pershing 
Rifles. With a basic thought of the future in their 
minds, this honor group is teaching good students 
how to become excellent soldiers.

Company K-I 

Company K, First Regiment of 
the National Honorary Society 
of Pershing Rifles, has been one 
of the most active honoraries on 
campus during the past school 
year. Beginning the year's ac- 
tivities with an open smoker on 
October 6, the society was off to 
a successful eight months of 
drill, hard work and fellowship 
which gives Kent one of the out- 
standing drill units in the nation. 

Miss Sheila Sampsell was 
elected to reign as the company 
sponsor for the year and she ful- 
filled her position majestically. 
Highlights throughout the year 
kept the PR members busy. 
Pledging during the Fall quar- 
ter, informal and formal initia- 
tions, the annual formal dance, 
the traditional military field ex- 
ercise, the highly competitive 
drill meet, the company drill 
meet with John Carroll univer- 
sity and Youngstown college 
were some of the outstanding 

Also, the company marched in 
the Campus Day parade and in 
the Memorial Day parade in 
Canton. The unit drilled at half- 
time intermissions at basketball 
games and formed a flag-raising 
guard at home football games. 

Contributors of color to many of the University's functions, Per- 
shing Rifles can be seen performing in parades, at sport events 
and in drill meets throughout the year. Above, they put snap into 
the Campus Day parade and, below, drill at a basketball game. 

Sheila Sampsell was Pershing Rifle sponsor for the 
year. She ruled at all of the outfit's dances, 
parades and events held throughout her reign.

Basic Cadet Honor Squadron 

In order to encourage interest in the mission 
and traditions of the United States Air Force, a 
new organization was formed last year at Kent 

The group, called the Basic Cadet Honor Squad- 
ron, was the first of its kind in college AFROTC 
units. To be eligible for membership, a basic cadet 

must have at least one year of cadet courses. He 
must also have an accumulative point average of 
2.5 in both academic and military courses. 

The squadron makes trips to various Air Force 
bases and holds a tactical field drill in the Spring 
quarter. On the social side, the basic cadets are 
one of the sponsors of the Military Ball.

A three-story fireproof brick building, Terrace 
is actually two dorms in one. The twin dorms have 
one central lounge with all modern furnishings. 

Contemporary in design, the dorm was built 
with a theme of gracious living, initiating a new 
trend in dormitory living. A food warehouse and 
bakeshop for the entire campus are also included 
in the structure. Blond modern furniture, soft 
lighting and thick carpets are featured in the plush

The second "L," South Terrace Hall, 
completes the huge X of Terrace. 
This look-a-like dorm also houses 250 
girls and a resident housemother. 
South Terrace wings face Terrace 
drive and the tennis courts. 

A distinguishing mark of the twin 
dorms are the dining halls and bakery 
located in South Terrace's wings. 
Both dorms also share the use of the 
beautiful lounge. 

Contrary to what people would like 
to believe, the two dorms are not 
rivals. They plan to work collectively 
on campus affairs such as Campus 
Day, Homecoming and Penny Carn- 
ival. South Terrace is equipped with 
the same facilities; the only differ- 
ence is that their corridors are green 
and North Terrace's, pink.

One could hardly tell it from a hotel registration desk, except for the 
continual signing in and out. Ginnie McCabe, Eleanor King and Bernie 
Barnes are among those who frequent the desk — in South Terrace.

Engleman Hall 

Though the "W" is before the "X" by one 
space in the alphabet, at Kent they are years 
apart. The X-shaped dorm, Terrace was con- 
structed 16 years after Engleman's completion. 
The vine-covered, window-dotted brick structure, 
known as Engleman, was, for the first time a 
freshmen dorm. Within those walls the co-eds 
live, laugh and work. When they have problems 
they can look to their student counselors and the 
resident counselors, Miss Tschantz and Mrs. Love 
for understanding and advice. 

Interests in the dorm are as varied as the many 
girls. Whatever complaint may be made of dorm- 
itory life, it certainly can't be called dull. The dis- 
plays and floats provide the girls with a chance to 
use their ingenuity in working together. 

From the hub-bub and confusion that at times 
reigns will emerge the women who will be both 
intellectually and socially advanced. 


With the motto "Keep Lowry Moving," the 
dorm's resident counselor works with its elected 
officers and representatives to make Lowry "the 
dorm" on campus. 

Naturally, such a motto could not be lived up 
to without the help of all the Lowryites. Their 
first opportunity to establish themselves and their 
motto came at Homecoming time. By working 
together, they won first place with their cyclone 
decoration entitled "Flashes Down Falcons!" 

Part of "keeping Lowry moving" involved also 
the study of books and the making of good point 
averages. Of course good times were not entirely 
laid aside for book study. Hours flew by in learn- 
ing the latest dance steps, listening to records, 
playing the piano and viewing television. 

Winter quarter the girls entered Pork Barrel, 
gave a Lowry formal and had other social activi- 
ties to really keep Lowry moving.

Moulton Hall 

Moulton — the dorm with a personality. Oh, 
what a story she could tell of those first few heart- 
breaking weeks away from home, the problems of 
adjusting to college life; then the gaiety and laugh- 
ter as the freshman girl finds a group of friends 
who are to her liking and share the same interests. 

Furniture is moved around, feminine touches 
added to make the room more like home; bulletin 
boards are tacked up so that souvenirs of the 
dances and future social events can be pinned up 
as gay reminders. 

Situated on the bottom of Hilltop drive, Moul- 
ton Hall is the second oldest dorm. Housing about 
250 women, Moulton is self-governing. Officers 
and the house council which sets up the regula- 
tions are elected by the coeds. 

And when the freshman year comes to a close, 
the coed has forgotten the unhappiness of the first 
few weeks and faces new adventures with a fresh 

Vacation time has finally arrived 
which means there's packing to do.

Stopher Hall 

George Washington didn't sleep here, but 275 
men do every night. 

Stopher Hall is composed of men of diversi- 
fied interests, yet functions on a par with the 
fraternities, sororities and other campus organiza- 
tions of KSU. 

Stopher is active in Songfest, Homecoming, 
Campus Day and Pork Barrel. Residents are 
proud of their 1954-55 accomplishments which in- 
cluded first place awards for Pork Barrel and 
Campus Day. 

The men of the dorm hold many social affairs, 
including interdorm dances and Winter and 
Spring formals. 

No other organization on campus enjoys a 
more worthwhile event than Stopher does when 
giving their annual Christmas party for under- 
privileged children. 

For those men who are athletically minded, 
there is a well-rounded intramural program.

Like-minded people, like birds of a feather, 
flock together. The result is organization — all 
sorts and kinds. A campus without organizations 
would be a desolate place indeed. 

Organizations are formed for social purposes, 
business purposes, economic purposes or just 
formed. When there are too many, some silently 
fold up. When there are too few, there are enthu- 
siastic promoters. 

Every person is many sided, therefore organiza- 
tions must be many sided and Kent State provides 
enough clubs, committees and organized groups to 
satisfy its many-sided students. They may be 
formed for debating, theater, foreign languages or 
student government. 

And if there is no club that suits the fancy, 
wait for the other two fellows and organize. For 
someone once said that, in America, whenever 
three persons meet, they elect officers and adopt 
a constitution. Maybe so. 

The success of an\' organization is due to the active 
participation that is taken by all ot its members. 

To fulfill a purpose, an 
organization is born.

Pigskins were not the only soaring spheres dur- 
ing Fall quarter. The Alpha Chi Omega's let 
loose huge numbers of helium-filled balloons im- 
printed with its sorority name at all the home 
football games. 

As the balloons floated skyward at the Home- 
coming game, the A Chi O's hopes also rose for a 
first place in house decorations to follow up their 
Campus Day victory. 

The clang of the trolley had rung out victory 
during Spring quarter and the award was proud- 
ly displayed in the trophy case. The space next to 
it was quickly filled when the judges gave the dis- 
play nod to A Chi O. 

The "lyre and pearls" is seen on many campus 
"bigwigs" including the secretary of the junior 
class, an attendant to the Burr queen and the sec- 
retary of Cardinal Key. 

Faye Allen, Natalie DeBlasio, Ann 
Lopane and Bobbie Holliday do their 
homework in Advanced Cardplaying 491.

Alpha Gamma Delta 

Polished silver and a lace tablecloth mean teatime 
for sorority sisters: Janet Harsh, Rae Crawford, 
Kay Clabaugh, (doing the honors) and Jane Gotschall. 

A 50th birthday didn't make the Alpha Gam's 
feel any older, but it added a few gray hairs to the 
national organization founded in 1904. Their anni- 
versary celebration was further brightened by 
their third place Homecoming trophy. Shadowing 
their chapter house with a mammoth telephone, 
the Alpha Gam's "dialed slaughter" as the Golden 
Flashes beat Bowling Green. 

Decorations didn't stop with Homecoming. Last 
summer a redecoration program changed the in- 
terior of the second floor of their chapter house. 
A coat of white paint added to the outside finished 
the project. 

On campus, Alpha Gamma Delta is represented 
in Cardinal Key, Sharks Club and the Kent Stater. 
A well-known member is Kent State's president's 
wife, one of many outstanding sisters.

Leave it to the Alpha Phis to dig 
a skeleton out of their closet to 
give Bowling Green a real scare. 

Kent State's politics needed a shot in the arm. 
Wielding the needle, the Alpha Phis jabbed deep 
and came out with a new political party backing. 
Political interest on campus aroused other organi- 
zations to follow the trend set by the Phis. 

Excitement at the house on Main street did not 
end with politics. One evening nocturnal callers 
mistook the fire escape for the front door and at- 
tempted an unscheduled visit. Finding the screams 
of the co-eds unwelcome, the visitors retreated 

On campus the "slap-bang" girls are active in 
Cardinal Key, Student Council, AWS and Booster 
;lub. Queenships come easily to the attractive sis- 
ters. Last year's Rowboat Regatta queen, the 
Chestnut Burr queen, DU's K-Girl and KSU's 
Most Popular Woman were Phis. Attendants to 
the May Queen, Military Ball Queen and Miss 
Kent State rounded out their beauty honors.

It takes one of Kent State's Alpha Xi's to re- 
main sweet and self-controlled when someone re- 
fers to her sorority pin as a toothbrush. Their 
feather-shaped pin has been subject to much name 
calling ever since it's been worn, but the tooth- 
brush tag best represents the smiling queens of 
Alpha Xi Delta. 

1954's Homecoming Queen gleamed her way to 
top place wearing an Alpha Xi pin. Sporting the 
same emblem were three girls on the May Day 
Court, an attendant to the May Queen and three 
varsity cheerleaders. Their near-professional 
"Darkies Doodah" won Pork Barrel for them last 

The loss of a sister in a tragic automobile ac- 
cident last year resulted in the Kay Berger award, 
which is given to the outstanding pledge of the 

The Alpha Xi's "knocked out" B-G 
with a large quantity of home-brewed 
moonshine as they presented their 
"wet" Homecoming Dav decoration.

After dinner-treat for Chi O's is the Sunday papers. 

First place in Rowboat Regatta rowing contest, 
second place in May-Day relays, Booster's cheer- 
leading trophy, and five straight years of winning 
the WRA athletic trophy! The Chi Omega's may 
not all be majoring in HPE, but they've copped 
enough sports awards to verify their athletic 

Talents jumped to other fields when the Chi O's 
"la-de-dad" their way to four consecutive first

Delta Gamma 

Homecoming decorations found everything "in 
the bag" for the Delta Gamma's except a trophy 
for their 20-foot blue kangaroo. Undaunted, the 
activity-conscious DG's ranked high in other com- 
petition. The scholarship trophies decorating the 
mantel are proof that brains and looks can go to- 
gether. They supported a candidate for Miss Kent 
State, held queen attendantships to the May Day 
and Chestnut Burr queens and nationally, Miss 
America of 1953 and Miss Ohio of 1954 were sor- 
ority sisters. DG's quartet harmonized its way to 
first place in the sorority division. 

Student Council's president wore an anchor, as 
did the sophomore secretary, three AWS mem- 
bers, two Varsity cheerleaders, an AROTC spon- 
sor, several Cardinal Key girls, 1954's outstanding 
junior woman and senior winner of the Woman- 
hood award. Full of ideas from their 1954 conven- 
tion, Delta Gamma returned home to begin their 
eighth year as a national organization.

Delta Zeta now has its own Audubon Society 
on campus. At Homecoming they proudly dis- 
played a falcon in a frying pan and during the year 
a dead sparrow was routed from their chimney. 

Posing as decoys for their Penny Carnival 
booth by acting as the set-ups in a paste-throwing 
contest, the DZ's torture was not in vain. The 
girls were awarded second place. Then showing 
that their wings couldn't be clipped, the sisters of 
the lamp flew to an easy May Day relay victory. 

A familiar adage, "birds of a feather flock to- 
gether" was apparent as the sorority claimed 
1954's Freedom Girl, Varsity K-Queen and Snow- 
ball Queen. 

Adrienne Kost is the center of 
attraction as the DZ's put 

their musical talents to use.

Pan Hellenic 

Sororities returned to campus this fall to find 
radical changes made in rushing procedures. 
Freshman rushing had been deferred until Winter 
quarter, putting sororities on the same basis as 
the fraternities. 

This change was made by the governing body 
for sororities at Kent State, Pan Hellenic Council. 
With three delegates from each sorority Pan Hel- 
lenic acts as the go-between for sororities and un- 
affiliated women. In living up to the creed of the 
National Council, the organization strives to make 
sorority life an opportunity for each affiliated 
woman to prepare wisely for her future as a 
citizen in a democracy. 

Pan Hellenic, advised by the Assistant Dean of 
Women, publishes "It's All Greek To Me," a book- 
let for new rushees.

Interfraternity Council 

During the past year, Interfraternity Council 
became more fully established as one of the most 
important governing bodies on the campus. 

The three R's — (rules, rushing and regulations) 
became the byword of the group. New rules on 
rushing were put into use to regulate the pledging 
of freshmen and transfer students during the Win- 
ter quarter. 

The group has for 14 years striven to promote 
and encourage personal development of its mem- 
bers in the intellectual, physical and social fields. 

Basically, the group is made up of the president 
and one member from each fraternity. The small 
body finds it much more advantageous to work 
with this centralized authority. 

A strong spirit of competition and fair play is 
promoted by the council as it strongly backs intra- 
mural athletics by awarding trophies to the win- 
ners in nine major sports.

The first anniversary candle had barely gone 
out for Zeta Zeta chapter of Alpha Tau Omega 
when they began filling their mantelpiece with 
an array of new trophies. 

A total of ten cups were added to the Tau man- 
tel during the Spring quarter. Among the awards 
they received were first place in Penny Carnival, 
first place in the Quartet Singing contest, first 
place in the May Day relays and two third place 
trophies for Campus Day songfest and Float com- 
petition. The ATO library was judged best among 
the fraternities and received the Dean Manchester

Charcoal Jackets and Real 'Collegiate . . . 

The men of Delta Tau Delta have managed to 
win two first place awards this year for their 
ability to design floats and decorations. The buck- 
ing model "T" on their "collegiate" Campus Day 
float and the shooting gallery set-up for Homecom- 
ing garnered the Delts first place awards. 

Singing has also brought this fraternity awards. 
For the fourth time in a row the Delts won Campus 
Day songfest. In the All-Ohio Delta Tau Delta 
songfest, they added another trophy to their list 
by taking first place. 

Charcoal jackets became the vogue for college 
men during the past year and the Delts were none 
to argue the point. They seemed to have rounded 
up all the gray sports coats in town, as charcoal 
and Delts became synonymous. 

Social activities for the year included a Winter 
formal and a Spring formal dinner-dance.

Delta Upsilon 

Setting traditions seems to be a habit with 
Delta Upsilon. One was started this year when the 
fraternity decided to co-sponsor the all-university 
Halloween Howl! The boys of the blue and gold 
also open Campus Day celebrations each year with 
the presentation of their K-girl in ceremonies be- 
hind the library. 

The local chapter has for many years received 
recognition as one of DU's strongest groups. Three 
seems to be their lucky number. They captured 
the national public relations plaque for the third 
year straight and received the third best chapter 
rating in the nation. 

DU's active on campus take part on Varsity 
football and basketball teams, student council, 
Stater and Mens Student Association. Others in-

Not letting schoolwork take up all their time, 
the Kappa Sigs found leisure moments to include 
numerous and varied events in their social cal- 

Each year the Rascal's Romp is sponsored by 
the pledge class. The men of Epsilon Rho are also 
the co-sponsors of the annual Kappa Sigma Nu 

The boys of the green, scarlet and white also 
found time to crowd annual Spring and Winter 
formals into their social calendars. A "sweetheart" 
reigns at the Winter formal. 

Despite all the social activities the fraternity 
upholds a high scholastic average. The national 
awarded the KSU chapter two consecutive schol- 
arships for keeping their grades above the all 
men's average. 

The painting of the outside of the house and a 
complete redecoration of the inside were among 
the projects of the year. Plans were also under- 
way to join the proposed fraternity row.

Realizing a three year ambition, Phi Delta 
Theta literally "got its long trousers" as it became 
Kent State university's most recent national fra- 
ternity. It replaced Phi Gamma Theta, a local 
since 1947. 

The Phi Gams were accepted into brotherhood 
at the Phi Delta Theta general convention in Sep- 
tember, 1954 becoming one of over 120 undergrad- 
uate chapters throughout the United States and 

The former "Phi-Gams" kept their members 
busy throughout the year with a well-rounded 
social program. A new innovation was the tra- 
ditional "She Delta Theta" week which is cele- 
brated by all chapters of Phi Delta Theta. 

The Phi Delts panted for breath as they pulled 
hard for the tug-of-war trophy at the Rowboat 
Regatta. Oddly enough, they sponsor this event

Phi Kappa Tau 

"Down with campus domination by a few," was 
the battle cry of the founders of Phi Kappa Tau na- 
tional fraternity. In 1906 at Miami university in 
Oxford, Ohio, a group of students got together to 
form a fraternity built on a democratic basis. 

The local chapter has been active in national 
relations since its founding. It was host to eleven 
brother groups at the spring dominion meeting. 
They also co-sponsored the regional dinner-dance. 

Phi Tau's mark the treasurers of Interfraternity 
Council, the senior class and the Arnold Air So- 
ciety in their ranks. Another is the president of 
the Lutheran Student Fellowship. 

Each year the social calendar is marked in 
March as a remembrance of the Founders Day 
dance. Numerous other social events are also held.

A variety of parties, dances and formals were 
mixed into the more serious business of fraternity 
development as Phi Sigma Kappa took another 
step forward toward its goal of superior scholar- 
ship and social living. 

The traditional Founder's Day banquet and

leading social functions of the year. Also included 
were the All-University dance and the Spring

Adding to what could be called "old" fraternity 
row, Sigma Alpha Epsilon moved their belongings 
to their new house on Main street during Winter

Much attention was drawn to the Sig Eps when 
they proudly sported their new scarlet jackets. 
Also their musical talent was recognized when 
they won the quartet singing championship.

Vocal Chords and Enormous Floats . . . 

The Theta Chi chapter at KSU is known for 
its ability to sing at the drop of a hat and to have 
more exchange dinners than any other fraternity 
on campus. 

The song group was the first to serenade a 
sorority house during the Fall quarter and first 
to serenade Terrace hall. This group has the dis- 
tinction of having sung to every sorority house 
and dormitory on campus. 

During the year, the singers vocalized their 
way to third place honors in Pork Barrel. Their 
Homecoming display towered fourteen feet and 
spread thirty feet along the base. The Campus 
Day float was so big that it had to be towed by 
a semi-trailer cab. 

The local men beat their brothers from Akron 
U. in the traditional Jug touch-football game.

'Lanolin Plus' and Pilgrims' 


To promote spiritual life within its membership 
is the primary aim of the national organization of 
Theta Kappa Phi. The local chapter has fulfilled 
this pledge to the utmost in carrying on constant 
work as the backbone of the Newman club. 

The Theta Kaps have almost built up a mo- 
nopoly on winning the annual beard growing 
contest. They do not attribute their success to the 
use of lanolin, as many think, but to the persever- 
ance of their entrants. 

Campus social functions of the fraternity are 
occasions which the members can justly be proud 
of sponsoring. Their Gold Cup formal, the Pil- 
grims' Prom and the Sweater hop have become 
traditions at KSU. Graduating seniors of the fra- 
ternity are honored at a banquet where the top 
senior is awarded a scholarship trophy. 

"Why is the book that's 
always needed on the top 
shelf," ask Theta Kaps?

Hopes of joining a national and becoming part 
of the proposed fraternity row are the two biggest 
aims of Kappa Psi Alpha, inter-racial fraternity. 

Beginning as the Scrollers club, the group 
achieved local fraternity status in December, 1953. 

The organization sponsored the campus appear- 
ance of the Karamu Dancers and is also active 
in Penny Carnival and intramural sports. 

On Campus Day they attracted attention by 
wearing the new style for college men — Bermuda 
shorts and argyle socks.

Business administration and Delta Sigma Pi 
have become synonymous on the campus. Since 
1942, when the local Delta Sigs became part of the 
national organization, the group has been one of 
the dominant forces in the progress of the business 
field at Kent. 

The brothers keep in contact with the "out- 
side" business world by taking frequent trips to 
commercial and industrial institutions. 

Once a month the chapter is host to speakers 
from the important industrial plants, commercial 
organizations and business enterprises. 

Delta Sigma Pi always is near the top in 
scholarship. One of the reasons for this is the 
2.25 cumulative point average required for mem- 

Scholarship and business interests are not the 
only things which occupy the Delta Sig's time. 
They continuously invent winning Campus Day 
floats and Homecoming decorations. Their social 
calendar is always full.

Kent State's Architectural Society has made 
great strides in reaching for the star in their hori- 
zon. Kent State now has a Student Chapter of the 
American Institute of Architects. The charter 
was presented to the Kent State Architectural So- 
ciety in behalf of the University last February. 

The emphasis of the chapter is directed toward 
professional rather than social goals. The chapter 
also fosters fellowship, cooperation and a spirit of 
unity between the student and practicing archi- 

The chapter held a dinner at the Student 
Union for the AIA architects of Northeastern 
Ohio. Visiting registered architects also give lec- 
tures to the chapter and judges contests held by 
the members. 

Upon graduation, a member assumes the re- 
sponsibilities of an associate membership in any 
senior chapter of the Institute. Members of the 
senior chapters also help by finding employment 
for graduating seniors. 


Future businessmen and potential tycoons of 
America attending Kent State are invariably 
found to be members of the Society for the Ad- 
vancement of Management. 

Industry, commerce, government and manage- 
ment are all parts of the SAM itinerary. Founded 
for the purpose of helping business administration 
students select a successful career, better under- 
stand their chosen career and broaden classroom 
experiences in scientific management, Society for 
the Advancement for Management, is open to all 
sophomore students in the College of Business 
who have a 2.5 cumulative average. 

An important part of the Society's activities 
takes place at the annual banquet which features a 
famous speaker from the field of management. At 
this affair the outstanding student in business 
management is named. 

Members are also guests at banquets and 
speeches concerning business and management 
sponsored by the Akron chapter of the organiza-

When it's pledging time at KSU most of the 
pledges wear pins, but there is a certain group on 
campus that wears burned-out flashbulbs on long 
red ribbons. 

This distinuguishes them as the prospects for

bers of Chi chapter of KAM provide pictures for 
University publications and promote photog- 
raphy at the same time. 

Theta Sigma Phi 

Opportunities for women in the journalism 
field have become greater since the old days of the 
early 1900's. 

Theta Sigma Phi, women's journalism honor- 
ary, originated in 1909, has played a big part in 
giving the female sex more rights and privileges in 
journalism. The KSU Chapter, founded three 
years ago, has attained a high standing among or- 
ganizations in that short time.

With a motto "He serves best who serves 
the truth" KSU's chapter of Sigma Delta 
Chi entered its third year. It is one of 
the three professional fraternities on 

Three purposes form the basis of this 
journalistic fraternity. First, to provide an 
organized unit for journalists of talent, 
energy and truth. Second, to assist the 
members in acquiring the highest princi- 
ples of journalism and to cooperate with 
them in this field. Third, to advance the 
standards of the press by fostering a 
higher ethical code. 

Early in the Fall quarter, the chapter 
promoted the Front Page Ball. They also 
undertook the news event at NEOSP clinic 
and the annual publications banquet. Ad- 
ditional plans undertaken were to give a 
scholarship to a freshman student in jour- 
nalism and sponsor Rowboat Regatta. 

The fraternity holds monthly banquets 
at which time outstanding speakers in the 
field of journalism are brought in.

A blue key actually has few uses. It cannot 
open doors, it isn't the solution to a problem and it 
can't give one the answers to a test. But a Blue 
Key in the life of a Kent man does have a special 
meaning. As Phi Beta Kappa stamps a person for 
scholarship, so Blue Key marks him as one of all- 
around ability, good character, possessing the qual- 
ities of leadership and the confidence of his fellow 

The Blue Key does help in opening one door — 
the entrance of KSU to incoming freshmen. Many 
of the brothers act as advisors to these new stu- 
dents. They also serve as hosts for Homecoming 
and for Alumni Day. 

Numerous Christmas cards reach their desti- 
nation through the aid of the organization's Blue 
Book, an all-university directory, published an- 
nually. Penny Carnival is another operation under 
the direction of these "wheels" of the campus. 

Membership into this honorary comes hard. 
The present 21 members have fulfilled their three 
basic requirements, a combination of service, 
leadership and scholarship. Each of these men is 
able to boast that he is part of the national motto, 
"Serving I live."

The proverbial "black book" has been replaced on the

In Service Fraternity 

Blue Key sprung from a faith in the sincerity 
and ability of college men. The fraternity had its 
foundation first in the idea that real American 
university student leaders are God-fearing, law- 
abiding citizens who believe that worthwhile pro- 
gress can best be made through the orderly proces- 
ses of evolution and not revolution. Secondly, the 
belief that male students are adults and should 
be treated as such. 

In 1924 twenty-five outstanding student leaders 
were called together on the University of Florida 
campus. These men were chosen for their promi- 
nence and confidence by the student body. By 
1934 the organization was a well-formed national 
fraternity. As everywhere else in the fraternity 
world, quality, not quantity, counts.

Cardinal Key 

Home Ec Club 

At Kent, as well as at other universities, there 
are some people who are more prominent than 
others. If these standouts are feminine, they are 
likely to be members of Cardinal Key. 

As a key must be near-perfect to open a lock, 
so the girls of this honorary must possess high 
character, prudence, temperance and fortitude. 
They are dedicated to religion, service through 
leadership and patriotism. 

Thirty-eight years is a long time to have any- 
thing on the stove, but the KSU Home Economics 
club is still literally "cooking with gas." 

During the year speakers are brought to the 
campus for meetings, Christmas dinner is given, 
the seniors are honored at a breakfast, a Buddy 
picnic is held and a Fun Nite is staged. 

These girls are finding out the right way 
to a man's heart and any employer's pocket book.

Future Teachers of America 

Demand is always great for teachers who are 
well-trained and Kent is one of the leading sup- 
pliers for this field. 

On this campus there is an organization whose 
purpose is to give its members an insight into 
their prospective career. This group is for future 
teachers, appropriately named FTA — future teach- 
ers of America. 

FTA sponsors high school groups who have 
their own chapters and who come to Kent. FTA 
also attends NEO and Ohio Schools. 

Other projects are the Freshman Tea in the 
fall with faculty members, deans and the Presi- 
dent. On the social side, they hold an annual 
Christmas party for the underprivileged children, 
have social meetings with such clubs as the In- 
dustrial Arts club and, of course, the annual 
weiner roast in May. Also every spring, FTA 
brings a famous speaker to the campus who is in 
the education field. 

Advisors for this organization are Dr. Charles 
Carter, Mr. George Cook and Miss Anita Crist.

HPE Club 

Believing that good recreation is the cure for 
many evils, the health and physical education ma- 
jors find a common meeting ground in the HPE 

The purpose of the club is not to build muscles, 
but to promote professional interest and stimulate 
better student relationships through recreation. 
Meetings also provide members an opportunity to 
hear speakers from their own profession. 

Delta Psi Kappa 

Delta Psi Kappa, physical education honorary, 
is open to women majoring or minoring in that 

Those women who attain membership in this 
organization must have an over-all scholastic av- 
erage of 2.5 and a B average in their physical edu- 
cation classes. The main aim of the group is to 
achieve a more cooperative spirit and better re- 
lationships among the students.

Chemical Society 

Geological Society 

Following today's growing interest in science, 
Kent's chemistry club became a student affiliate 
of the American Chemical Society in 1950. 

Its chief purpose is to instill students of science 
with a pride in their profession and give them a 
chance to meet important men in the field. This 
is accomplished through group-sponsored ban- 
quets, picnics and field trips. Along with these, 
movies are shown and speakers are brought in. 

The Geological Society is composed of stu- 
dents and faculty members who are interested in 
the physical aspects of the world we live in. The 
society sponsors field trips to points of geological 
interest in the surrounding area and engages 
speakers throughout the year to discuss various 
topics pertaining to geology. These activities 
have increased the scientific interests of the mem- 
bers of the organization, founded in 1948.

Delta Omicron 

One of the newest honoraries on the Kent 
campus, Delta Omicron, national professional mu- 
sic fraternity, organized in March 1954, has al- 
ready attained a high place in the lives of many 
music students. 

Furthering the progress of American music and 
American women composers and raising scholar- 
ship standards are the group's two main objectives. 

Music Educators Club 

The Music Educators club was formed to ac- 
quaint members with problems they may en- 
counter upon entering the music teaching pro- 

The club's roster now lists 33 music education 
majors and minors. Social and educational meet- 
ings are held monthly. Some of the members also 
attend the national conferences.

Phi Gamma Nu 

Who says it's a man's world? This is no longer 
true in the business world, however. Women have 
long since proved to be equal, if not better than 
some of the businessmen themselves. 

Out of this invasion of the male empire arose 
an organization which united American business 
women — Phi Gamma Nu. 

The honorary was established at KSU in 
March, 1951 and is a social as well as professional 
honorary for the female business majors. The 
honorary sorority requires a point average of 2.7 or 

Phi Gamma Nu works not only for KSU, but 
for the surrounding community as well. Each year 
the organization presents a typewriter to a nearby 
veteran's hospital. Also, a scholarship key is given 
to a senior woman with the highest point average 
in BA. Another project of Phi Gamma Nu is the 
provision of a loan fund to help members finish 
their education.

Alpha Phi Omega 

The University serves its students, but who 
serves the University? This is the proud function 
of the members of Alpha Phi Omega, who have 
been the right-hand men of Kent for thirteen 

They launched the Community Chest drive 
into full swing again this year by distributing con- 
tainers to all the dormitories and the Student 

The national service fraternity has a four- 
point program which stresses service to the Uni- 
versity, to the community, to the country and to 
themselves. However, it is not an honorary fra- 
ternity, but requires members to have previous 
Boy Scout training and a sincere desire to serve 
the University. The members come from every 
field of interest: — journalism, science, education 
and music. 

Among past donations to the campus made by 
this organization is included the Victory Bell pre- 
sented to the school to be rung on the occasion of 
every Kent victory.

"With liberty and justice for all." The mem- 
bers of the Society for Justice weren't the first to 
voice this cherished ideal, but they will defend it 
with every bit of argument and ingenuity they 

The Society for Justice is a new organization 
but it is an outgrowth of the old pre-law club. Its 
primary aim is to promote a better understanding 

of the field of law among its members and among 
the general public. 

The 30 members of the group are either pre- 
law or political science majors. They meet twice 
monthly for programs, debates and discussions. 

With the Lady of Justice as their symbol, the 
members of the Society are the future preservers 
of the American system of fair trial and justice 
for all.

The purpose of the organization is to make so- 
cial ties between students attracted to the indus- 
trial arts field. The social events which further 
this desire include a semi-formal dance and a ban- 
quet with members of the aviation and architec- 
ture groups. 

Membership, which numbers about eighty, is 
open to any major or minor in the field. Meetings 
are held every Wednesday night at which time 
outside speakers are brought to the campus to 
speak on various interesting topics concerned with 
the field.

Pi Omega Pi is the national honorary fraternity 
for Business Education majors. 

One of the newest honoraries on the Kent 
campus, the local chapter was installed in Janu- 
ary, 1953. Members of the business group are se- 
lected on the basis of four principles: scholarship, 
citizenship, service and ethics. 

The group, which meets twice a month, has 
certain requirements which its members must 
meet. Among these are a 3.0 average in educa- 
tion and business subjects and 2.5 average in all 
other curriculum. 

Pi Omega Pi has aided both University and 
civic organizations this year. Their main project 
during the school year was to supply magazines 
to neighboring homes for the aged. Another goal 
which was achieved was the preparation of ma- 
terials for classes in business education.

Delta Phi Alpha 

The most important thing in learning any 
foreign language is to keep at it day after day. As 
more and more students became interested in 
languages, other than English, they organized 
social groups to provide a pleasant atmosphere for 
a continued and more intense study of these 

The Chi chapter of Pi Delta Phi, the French 
honorary and Beta Lambda, local chapter of Sigma 
Delta Pi, Spanish honorary both came to the cam- 
pus in 1948. Two years later a German honorary, 
Delta Phi Alpha, joined these other two. These 
groups watch movies, read books and speak in the 
foreign tongue.

organizations on campus, the Art Guild is relative- 
ly new, having its beginning on February 12, 1953 

The primary purpose of the Art Guild is to 
stimulate interest and encourage art throughout 
Kent State University. It holds meetings every 
Tuesday and Thursday. The Thursday meeting is 
chiefly a workshop session. 

The principle activities of the group are work- 
shop sessions, trips to museums and demonstra- 
tions and lectures. 

Membership is open to all students at Kent 
State, not just art students. Through this the 
Guild hopes to further the interest of art and per- 
haps discover hidden talents.

Flying Club 

There are many people in this world who have 
always dreamed of flying into the "vast unknown" 
or the upper hemisphere, but who either don't 
have the opportunity nor the means to fulfill this 

On KSU's campus, however, there is an or- 
ganization whose purpose is to give both under- 
graduates and faculty the chance to fly at a mini- 
mum cost. This group is known as the Kent State 
Flying Club and was one of the first of its kind 
in Ohio to be granted a corporation charter by 
the state. 

Besides ownership of several light planes, the 
club has a glider that was presented to them by 
the state in cooperation with the Ohio Aviation 

The only requirements needed to join the fly- 
ing club is parental permission and a sincere de- 
sire to fly.

Newman Club 

A versatile schedule of religious and social acti- 
vities for its members is Newman Club's well- 
planned objective. 

The Catholic group had a big project on its 
hand when it undertook to remodel the former 
home of the custodian of St. Patrick's church. The 
church donated the place to the Newmanites after 
the new church was completed a year ago. The 
new center was remodeled under the supervision 
of one of its members who was an architect major. 
It has rooms for large gatherings, officer's rooms, 
a kitchen, project rooms, a club room and an office 
for Father Daum, group advisor. 

Each year, the Newman Club holds two all- 
University formals, as well as frequent informal 
dances. The club also participates in intramural

Lutheran Student Fellowship 

Having the greatest year since its organization 
at KSU, the Lutheran Student Fellowship became 
one of the stronger religious groups on campus. 
With an enrollment far exceeding that of the pre- 
vious year, the group began participating in many 
important University functions. 

The full schedule of activities included social 
as well as religious sessions. Good use was made 
of the year-old Student Center as it was used for 
regular bi-monthly meetings, cost suppers on Sun- 
day and studying throughout any day. The Cen- 
ter's television set, lounge chairs and couches gave 
students an opportunity to get away from their 

drab and boring study rooms to a place which re- 
sembled a homelike environment. The Sunday 
evening suppers gave Lutheran students and 
friends an opportunity to eat a home-cooked meal 
at cost and to take part in religious fellowship and 
recreation afterwards. 

While having a busy social year, the group 
also conducted a well-rounded religious program. 
Guest speakers in the field of Lutheran religion, 
movies on religious topics and special student 
church services highlighted the spiritual activities 
during the year.

fastest way for everyone to become acquainted with one another. 

United Christian Fellowship 

UCF — United Christian Fellowship, is one of 
only five such religious groups in the United 

Eight national Protestant denominations make 
up this group: Baptist, Congregational, Disciples 
of Christ, Episcopal, Evangelical and Reformed, 
Evangelical United Brethren, Presbyterian and 

The group sponsors a coffee hour every Wednes- 
day at 4 p.m. at the UCF house. Other activities 
include cost suppers on Sunday evenings, an an- 
nual Winter formal, a spring retreat and Religious 
Emphasis Week. A popular project that was 
started a year ago is UCF's supplying sandwiches 
to the dorms. UCF members make the sandwiches 

themselves and sell them between 10 and 10:30 
p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. 

UCF brings in different speakers, usually pas- 
tors from neighboring communities to speak at 
their coffee hours. These discussion meetings often 
attract as many as sixty students. Any student on 
campus may belong to UCF. 

Under the direction of Rev. William K. Laurie, 
UCF is a relatively new organization and still in 
the experimental stage. Many religious leaders of 
the nation are closely observing this group. A 
board of trustees, composed of 36 ministers and 
laymen, together with professors and administra- 
tors of the University, supervise the policies, per- 
sonnel and funds of UCF. 


Students and religious leaders taki 
time out for refreshments at one of the 
many Wednesday UCF coffee hours. 

UCF members and friends turn their 
attention towards the speaker follow- 
ing a Sunday evening cost supper.

Hillel, small in numbers, large in hopes. 

Organized in March 1953, the B'nai Brith Hillel 
Councellorship offers the Jewish men and women 
on campus an opportunity to exchange ideas and 

The basic idea of Hillel is a simple one; to pro- 
mote fellowship and social understanding between 
students of the Jewish faith and among students 
of other religious backgrounds. 

Work, lectures, discussions and business meet- 
ings make Hillel look like a very serious group, 
but the social committee helps relieve this. A 
skate party, informal get-togethers and other so- 
cial affairs highlighted the social calendar. 

Under the advisorship of Rabbi Abraham Leib- 
tag, the group also takes an active part in Univer- 
sity Religious Council. Hillel meetings are held 
every Wednesday evening in the Student Union. 

Hillel, only two years old, is just beginning to 
walk. In the future they will march.

Like an argument? Easy! Just pick one word — 
sports. "Good" if you are on one side; "Bad" if you 
are on the other side. 

Let us pick a different word. Let us use the 
word recreation. Further let us break the word 
into parts and say re-creation. A time for human 
battery charging. 

At Kent we think of re-creation. Some play 
games in competition with teams from other 
schools, some play games within the intramural 
program, some seek partners for hand ball or 
bowling and some get the recharging second hand, 
as fans in the stands. 

Examine the Kent plan. You will find it based 
on recreation as defined by the best educational 
standards. The pessimist sees only five thousand 
cheering fan-atics two or three times a year, but 
the sound thinker sees a project serving five thous- 
and students day by day every day. 

Co-ordination of muscle and mind in smooth timing 
make a beautiful picture in any sportsman's eye 
for he appreciates the training necessary. 

These symbols of sports are 
the tools of an athlete.

Good Pitchine And Poor Hitting— An Average Ball Club 

Pitcher Bob Harrison and catcher George Janik teamed 
up to give the Flashes a strong battery combination. 
Harrison turned in key mound performances and Janik 
sparked the team with his throwing arm and big bat. 

The game of baseball consists generally of two 
phases — batting and pitching. And the 1954 edi- 
tion of the Golden Flash diamond team presented 
an interesting contrast between the two. Headed 
by three-year veteran Lou Bocci, who hurled a 6-0 
no-hitter against Marshall (the second in his ca- 
reer at Kent Stats) , the Flashes boasted a truly 
excellent mound staff. Bocci, Chuck Hofmeister 
and Bob Harrison, "big three" of the Hill corps, 
compiled an earned run average of only 3.18 — 
nearly as good as that of the Cleveland Indians, 
1954 American League champs. 

But Coach Matt Resick's men couldn't hit. The 
team batting average was an anemic .203. Only 
Dan Potopsky, first baseman, and Tony Rocco, 
second sacker, hit over .300. 

Put the two together, poor hitting and good 
pitching, and you have an average ball club. And 
that's just what the 1954 Flashes were — average. 
They broke even in eighteen games, winning nine 
and losing nine. They allowed 81 runs while scor- 
ing an almost equal number, 78. They finished 
fourth in Mid-American conference, an average 
position, with a 4-5 league record. And they even 
gave an average performance in extra-inning 
games, winning against Wooster in 11 innings and 
losing to Potomac State in 13. 


Track is the oldest of sports. Time has not destroyed its popularity 
since it was introduced by the ancient Greeks some 2500 years ago. 
Today, man is still trying to run faster, throw farther, 1 jump ,higher 
and break records set by his athletic forebears. The quest goes on at 
Kent State — and fascinated fans turn out to watch. 

Kent Carries On Quest of Ancient Greeks 


Members of the track team are: left to right, row 1: Bob Sprague, Bill 
Blair, Jim Bragg, Hal Mayhew, Phil Conti, Jack Ramage, Paul Fanti 
and Major Harris. Row 2: Mike Totten, Manager Art Zimmerman, 
Jim Whitley, Dale Thornberry, Bob Phelps. Clarence Johnson, 
Dick Bartfay, Bill Inderwish, Jim Menough, and Coach Jay Fischer. 

Peak individual effort and smooth teamwork are very 
essential in a relay race. Here Jim Bragg takes the 
baton from J. Whitley as they run the 440-yd. relay. 

Jim Bragg goes up, but 
not high enough, as he 
places second in the 
high jump against Akron. 
Kent lost the meet. 

Cindermen Finish 2-7 

At a casual glance, the 1954 track season ap- 
peared disappointing. The Golden Flash thin- 
clads won only two of seven meets and finished 
last in the Mid-American conference. On two 
occasions the opponents scored more than 100 
points against them. A closer look, however, re- 
vealed that the season wasn't a total loss. In fact, 
it provided plenty of room for optimism. 

It was the first year of an ambitious rebuilding 
program under a new coach, Jay Fischer, who suc- 
ceeded Joe Begala in order to permit Begala more 
time to devote to his wrestling team. Fischer's 
most important move was the development of a 
freshman squad which produced good prospects. 


Freshmen Out-Do Varsity 
And Break Four Records 

The freshman trackmen scored victories over 
Case and Ohio U frosh teams, and lost to the 
powerful Bowling Green yearling squad. It broke 
four existing freshman records at KSU, and sev- 
eral times it out-performed the varsity. Speaking 
of records, two varsity men, Phil Conti and Bob 
Phelps, added color to an otherwise drab season 
by breaking two of Kent's all-time records. Conti 
threw the discus 145'3", to better his own record 
of 135'3". Phelps set new heights for future pole 
vaulters to reach, as he vaulted 12'8 3 /4", topping 
his previous mark of 12'5V2". Both Phelps and 
Conti were seniors. 

Phil Conti, holder of KSU's shot put record, 
performed his specialty at the Akron U meet. 

Dick Bartfay and Jim Whitley flanked a Western 
Reserve hurdler in a torrid race at one meet. 

Paul Fanti led the pack in the mile run

he just barely manages to skim over the cross-bar.

Tennis Nets Best Season 

Strong serves and powerful returns paid divi- 
dends for the tennis team last spring, as the Golden 
Flash netmen compiled the best record in school 
history. Under Coach Karl Chesnutt's watchful 
eye, Kent ended the regular season with a 7-2 
record and went on to finish fourth in Mid- 
American conference playoffs. 

What makes the feat more outstanding is the 
fact that the squad was plagued by injury and 
illness in the campaign. Art DeGenaro, veteran 
net performer, suffered an arm injury toward the 
end of the season, while Blanford Fuller was put 
on the disabled list due to sickness. Both men 
were key performers in Kent's attack. 

The most impressive win of the year was a 9-0 
blanking of Western Reserve. This followed a 
tough 5-4 loss to Wooster College in the season 
opener and served to spark the Flashes along the 
victory trail. 

Letter winners included Bill Walker, Tom 
Beers, Harris Brown, Tom Meinhardt, Norton 
Schneps, Blanford Fuller and Art DeGenaro.

Golf Team Tied For First 

A 9-2 season record with first place tie for Mid- 
American conference honors last spring kept our 
golf coach, Howard Morrette, smiling throughout 
the year. In addition to this, the Flashes stroked 
their way to a third-place finish in the Ohio Inter- 
collegiate championship matches at Ohio State 
university and placed 18th in NCAA champion- 
ships held at Houston, Texas. This marked the 
first year KSU had appeared in the national 

Kent started its season with four consecutive 
wins before bowing to a strong University of 
Detroit squad. A loss to Ohio U was the only other 
flaw on the schedule as the Flashes ended the 
regular season with four straight decisions. A 12-0 
shutout over Western Reserve, a 24-3 rout of John 
Carroll, and two successive victories over Youngs- 
town, highlighted the play. Partial revenge for 
the Ohio U defeat was garnered in the Conference 
playoffs as the Flashes and Bobcats tied for first 

Joe Lazor led the squad with an average of 74.5 
per match. John Ailes finished second with a 74.7 
mark while Danny Forlani compiled a 75.6 aver- 
age. Chub Chionchio, Paul Yaworsky and Roger 
Johnston all played important roles in the success- 
ful campaign.

FOOTBALL SQUAD, left to right: row 1: Glenn Paulus, Tony D'Eramo, Major Harris, Bob KiiottS, Phil Perkins, Ed Zofko, Luke

Rees, head coach and athletic director. 

The Flashes were at their flashiest when they topped 
Western Reserve 65-0 for a new school scoring mark. 
Bill Whitley (below) and others made frequent gains. 

Whenever Lou Mariano needed a breather as fullback 
sophomore Bill Blair was always ready to step in and 
replace him. Here he fights for yardage against B-W. 

The 1954 football season was the greatest in 
history at Kent State — one that will live in the 
hearts of loyal Kent students for years to come. 
Coach Trevor Rees made his eighth year as head 
coach his best as the Golden Flashes rolled to an 
8-1 record, equaling that of the 1941 eleven. But 
there is no doubt that the '54 squad was a much 
better team. 

Playing in much rougher competition required 
by the Mid-American Conference, the Flashes 
ranked second in the nation in small-college total 
offense and established 17 all-time school records. 
Their total of 324 points set a new season record, 
as did their 3,392 yards rushing and 4,062 yards 
total offense. Their average of 36 points and 451 
yards a game were also new highs. And Lou Mar- 
iano, the deaf-mute fullback, earned places on 
various All-Ohio and all-league teams when he 
scored 86 points and rushed for 1,037 yards to set 
new records. 

In short, the Flashes were tremendous — and 
it was only natural that their string of records 
should stretch all the way to Evansville, Indiana, 
where the Refrigerator Bowl game put them in the 
national spotlight. 

Kent halfback Jim Whitley and Ohio U's John Evans 
(14) go up tor a KSU pass deep in Ohio territory.

Ohio U handed the Flashes their only loss by grinding out short yard- 
age. Here a Bobcat back is met by Kent Center Xunzio Polichene after 
picking up a few crucial yards. Jim Whitley (16) moves in to help.

Triumph Follows 
Quick Comeback 

All truly great teams in sports 
can be judged by their ability to 
come back. And that's just what 
the Flashes did after the Ohio U. 
loss. They didn't give up. They 
stormed back the week after to 
rip Marshall 41-20 and then to 
nudge Bowling Green 28-25 on 
a cold, wet Homecoming Day. 
Triumphs followed, over Akron 
U. 58-18, John Carroll 27-14 and 
Western Michigan 20-13. Coach 
Rees, Captain Sonji Herzberg 
and the whole courageous gang 
refused to let one loss ruin a 
season — and it paid off. Even- 
tually Ohio U. was beaten and 
the Flashes moved into second 
place behind mighty Miami in 
the league. And more important, 
it paid off in Kent State team's 
first bid to a post-season Bowl 

One of the surprises of the season 
was speedy Bill Whitley, who here 
swivel-hips against John Carroll. 

Three All-Ohioans, Mike Xorcia (42), Joe Barbee (72) 
and Xunzio Polichene (5(5), shown above bringing down 
a John Carroll back, made KSU's defense a stiff one. 

Halfback Jack Rittichier (40) brings down a bucking 
Western Michigan Bronco from behind in the mud and 
rain of the final game. Kent rallied to win, 20-13. 

Whenever Lou Mariano had daylight, he was away for 
a long gain. Here's one instance, though, where there 
was none as Western Michigan tacklers surround him. 


Mike Norcia, with a freshly-changed uniform, rammed 
for a short gain. Luke Owens (86) came to lend help. 

Like every other ball carrier, this Delaware back 
had trouble holding on to the slippery pigskin. 

No One Disappointed 

The Golden Flashes saw a season-long dream 
come to reality early in December as they were 
picked to play the University of Delaware in the 
Refrigerator Bowl at Evansville, Indiana. The 
Refrigerator Bowl is one of the eight post-season 
bowls sanctioned by the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association and Kent's selection represented 
quite a milestone in the University's history. 

The Flashes made the trip by chartered plane 
on a beautiful day, Dec. 4. They returned on an 
equally beautiful day, Dec. 6. But the day in 
between, Dec. 5 — the day of the big game — Coach 
Rees and the team would just as soon forget. 
Temperatures were just as cold as a refrigerator 
and an all-night rain coupled with a grassless 
gridiron made for the muddiest playing conditions 
imaginable. A constant drizzle during the game 
didn't help matters, either. 

Kent State entered the contest as the number 
one offensive team in the nation. Delaware, led 
by its ail-American quarterback Don Miller, was 
the number one passing team in the East. On pa- 
per the game was a "natural," and the two teams 
didn't disappoint. Despite the drab conditions, 
they put on a football duel that Evansville fans 
will not soon forget. 

Kent scored first as quarterback Bob Stimac 
climaxed a 40-yard second period drive by sneak- 
ing over from the one. Tony Rocco added the con- 
version and KSU led 7-0. But the Flashes couldn't 
get up touchdown traction in the mud after that, 
while Miller's aerial arm got hot for the Blue 
Hens. Two last period scores broke Kent's back. 
Final score: 19-7. 

Delaware players were 
muddy too as guard Nick 
Negro evidences. He's 
talking to Coach Jones. 

Whoops! Mike Norcia (42) just couldn't hang on to that 
wet ball as it went squirting out of his hands. A free- 
for-all ensued with Bob Stimac (22) finally falling on 
it to retain possession of the ball for the Flashes. 

Mud-caked and cold, Gino 
Monastra watched his 
teammates falter in the 
final minutes of the game. 

jB£ & W™ iSSf 

The Flashes returned with many fond memories and 
a shiny trophy, here being presented to Coach Rees. 

Your guess is as good as our's as to who this KSU 
ball carrier is. Mud and a Delaware man stop him.

Mak Mannen, junior forward who finished as second 
high scorer on the team with 270 points, looked as if 
he'd just jumped down through the encircled arms of 
Bowling Green's center, Max Chapman. The Flashes, 
who hadn't beaten BG since 1941, won twice in 1955. 

Arch McDonnell outraced two John Carroll defenders 
and leaped high to score an easy layup shot, with an 
appropriate facial expression to help. The Flashes 
met Carroll twice and dropped both games. McDonnell 
shook off an early season injury to score 248 points.

Coach Bud Haerr's basketball team went up 
and down more times during the '54-'55 season 
than a new army recruit doing belly-flops during 
calisthenics period. 

There were nights, such as when they surprised 
highly-touted Marshall 92-80 or when they halted 
Akron U's nine-game winning skein, that the 
Golden Flashes were veritable world-beaters. But 
then there were other nights, like when they 
bowed to little Mount Union or when they were 
in the midst of their nightmarish five-game losing 
streak at the close of the season, that they could do 
nothing right. 

Their unpredictability made the Flashes an 
interesting team to watch though and most Kent 
fans were satisfied with its 8-14 record. Its fifth 
place tie in the Mid-American conference with 
Bowling Green (record, 5-9) also was just about 
what was expected. But Haerr, fielding a team 
composed entirely of sophomores and juniors, has 
rosy ambitions for next year. The entire squad 
will return plus the addition of several top fresh- 
men prospects.

Dan "Spook" Potopsky may look 
sleepy-eyed, but get him on a basketball 
floor and you'll never find a more alert 

Dangerous Dan became the darling of 
KSU cage fans last winter as he shat- 
tered almost every scoring mark on the 
books at KSU. He finished with some 
493 points, a 23.4 average per game that 
put him among the top 20 scorers in the 
U.S. Both marks would have been high- 
er had not the Independence junior in- 
jured his hip and been forced to miss the 
last two games. Even still, his 493 total 
far surpassed the previous school high 
of 403 set by Leroy Thompson in 1948- 
49. And he was the first Flash ever to 
average over 20 points a game. 

His best night was against Western 
Michigan here as he pitched in 49 points, 
a new single-game record not only for 
Kent State, but also the Mid-American 
conference. With his pet jump shot 
finding the range nearly every shot, he 
hit on 20 field goals and nine free 

His scoring feats earned him many 
all-Ohio and all-conference honors. And 
best of all, he'll be back next year. 

Arch McDonnell and Akron U's Mel Kiser, 
(20) looked like they were playing foot- 
ball as they piled on a loose fumble. 

Seemingly no one especially wanted this 
loose ball in the Kent-Marshall game. 
Only KSU's Dick Tolloti reached for it. 

Mak Mannen and Western Reserve's Bob 
Coy went out of bounds for this one, 
right in front of the Kent State bench. 

Arch McDonnell (44), Don Gindlesberger 
(42) and Mak Mannen (54) all tried, but 
couldn't get the ball from WRU's Howard. 

WRESTLING TEAM, left to right: row 1: John Twark, Jack Love, 
Jack Patrick, Jerry Petrofes and Al Landau. Row 2: Steve Garrett, 
Lowell Busick, Harry Garner and Phil Perkins. Row 3: Coach Joe 
Begala, Lennie Pryzborowski, Melvin Nader and Robert Conrad. 

Wrestling Team Matches Football Record 

For the 11th time in Joe Begala's 26 years as 
KSU wrestling coach his team went through a 
season with only one loss. This year Weepin' Joe's 
team turned in an 8-1 record, identical to Trev 
Rees' football mark just a few months before. 

And also like the football team, the wrestlers 
suffered their only setback at the hands of Ohio 
U, who upset them 20-8 after they had won seven 
in a row. The Flashes also won third place in the 
Mid-American conference post-season meet. 

Begala, in his usual pre-season pessimism, said 
his team "would be lucky to win five this year." 
But led by Captain Johnny Twark and Jack Love, 
it surprised everybody. Twark went through all 
nine regular season matches undefeated and cap- 
tured first place in the 137 lb. class in the MAC 
meet. Love, who was ranked fourth in the nation 
in the 123 lb. division last spring, lost only one. He 
took his first seven matches by pins and went on 
after the season to defend his conference title by 
defeating the Ohio U wrestler who had handed 
him his only defeat during the regular campaign. 

Don Barry (top) applies the squeeze to his foe in 
a 147-lb. battle of strength and savvy. Wonder 
how much that gritting of his teeth helped him ?

Trace through this complexity ot arms and legs 
and you'll find Kent's Don Barry riding on top of Don 
Bonifield, of Ohio U. Barrv lost the close match. 

Ohio U gave the Golden Flashes their only defeat 
of the year, but certainly not through the fault 
of Phil Perkins, here pinning Ohio's Ben Carbons. 

Don Barry wraps his leg around his opponent's and 
lifts up the other knee to dump Bonifield to the 
canvas. The match was nip - tuck all the way.

KSU Swimming Team 

Coaches Bill Hoover and Dick Paskert were 
faced with a tremendous job in developing a 
strong swimming team at Kent State during the 
'55 season. 

Graduation took its usual heavy toll while oth- 
er 1954 mermen had dropped the sport for various 
reasons. The total results for the season was a 
squad made up of numerous underclassmen form- 
ed around a nucleus of a few returning veterans. 

Joe Kempf, a four year member of the swim- 
ming squad, performed in great style and sparked 
the attack. Dave Hambleton, Nick Bosworth and 
Dave Thomasson also turned in colorful perform- 
ances to make the season an interesting one. 

One hopeful note at the end of the season was 
that most of the swimmers would return for the 
'56 season. 

While Flash mermen churn the waters ot the MPE 
pool, robed teammates cheer for a Golden Flash victory. 

Away up in the air are breast strokers from Kent State and Oberlin as 
the) - vie fcr first-place laurels in swim competition at the MPE pool. 

Swimmers Find '55 
Season Rough Going 

Golden Flash mermen found the water rough 
this year as they managed to finish first in only 
five of twelve regularly scheduled meets. 

Coach Bill Hoover's swimmers opened their 
season in fine style by defeating Wooster college 
in the MPE building pool. After competing in the 
MAC relays at Miami university, the Flashes 
dropped two consecutive meets, one against Case 
Tech and the other against Carnegie Tech. 

Returning to friendly home waters, Kent went 
on their only winning spree of the campaign by 
drowning Wittenberg, Slippery Rock and Cincin- 
nati on consecutive weekends. 

Miami snapped the three-meet winning string 
by out-splashing the locals at Oxford. Kent never 
saw the surface again during the season as Ober- 
lin, Kenyon, and Ohio U. stroked past them. 

The Mid American Conference swimming 
meet held at Kent saw Miami the winner and 
Kent in fourth place. 

Kent State merman Dave Thomasson takes off 
on the initial lap of the backstroke competition. 

Down the home stretch come Flash swimmers 
as ther breaststroke the way to the finish line. 

A string of splashes charts the course as KSU 
backstrokers challenge opponent swimsters. 

Varsity diver John Bingham twists through the air as 
he competes for intercollegiate diving honors at KSU. 


Seeing old friends, getting back into the grind of classes and be- 
wildered freshmen are all part of the fall campus scene. Intramural 
football helps to bring the students together on the sports field. 

It's Not Varsity But It's Still Popular 

Anxious eyes watched the ball arch toward the hoop 
in one of the numerous intramural basketball games. 


Every bit as important as varsity sports in 
KSU's well-rounded athletic program are the in- 
tramural activities. Although they don't receive 
the headlines earned by the varsity teams, the in- 
tramurals are every bit as popular — perhaps even 
more so. They provide an outlet for hundreds of 
University males to participate in sports, a chance 
they wouldn't otherwise get. 

Directing the extensive program, which in- 
cludes at least 12 sports, is Victor Moore, director 
of intramurals. It's his job to arrange schedules, 
handle the various tournaments, keep the crowded 
program moving and generally keep peace among 
the fraternities and independent groups vying for 
top honors in the numerous sports. 

Team championships were pretty well passed 
around. In activity up to spring quarter, Delta 
Upsilon had copped the bowling title; Sigma Nu, 
volleyball; the Hounds (an independent entry), 
basketball; the KSU Vets, touch football; and 
Kappa Sigma, swimming. 

Alpha Tau Omega had three men win weight 
championships in wrestling; Sigma Nu, two; and 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Phi Delta Theta one 

With the fraternities, independents and dorms 
providing more than 20 teams, intramural athletics 
at Kent have an intensive competitive angle that 
adds spice to the university sports program. 

Beginning in the fall, the intramural program 
offers sports of interest to everyone throughout 
the school year. 

Among the many varieties of athletics offered 
to the non-varsity athlete are touch football, vol- 
leyball, softball, track, swimming, wrestling, table 
tennis and basketball. With such a wide scope of 
available sports many men and women take part 
in at least two of these activities. 

Under the direction of Vic Moore, the students 
play a leading role in the development of intra- 
murals. The intramural committee of the Student 
Council meets with Mr. Moore to plan organiza- 
tion and policies for the coming year. 

Close competition and sportsmanship are as much a 
part of intramurals as they are of varsity sports. 

Everyone An Athlete in Campus Intramurals 

Spring turns a young man's fancy to many things. One ol these is 
baseball. He's safe sliding into home, and one thing is for sure, 
it's a safe bet that another exciting ball game is under way.

To the students and faculty of Kent State University, 

Most authors take a page or two to write a preface for their book, and many yearbook editors devote 
a page to thank the many people who help in producing a publication of this type, and also to inform the 
readers as to just what it takes to produce a yearbook. I find myself no exception. 

A yearbook is a mechanical production, and without the finest professional help from the companies 
that service the yearbook, it would be impossible to come up with a top notch publication. My sincerest 
thanks to Russ Benson, Fred Noer, Frank Persell and Margaret Carey of the Indianapolis Engraving 
Co.; Jud Rinebold of the Gray Printing Co.; and Jim Sams and Bob Wilson of Kingsport Press Inc. 
Without the extra help of these people, ones who the students never see or meet, the Burr would never 
have been published, and they, along with the countless number of men working under their supervision, 
deserve a great deal of credit in producing the '55 book. 

Someone figured out that more than 7,000 man hours of work went into the 1955 edition of the 
Chestnut Burr, and its probably more than that by the time the hours of actual physical production are 

It's impossible to produce a 304 page volume without a staff, and it was a small one because we eli- 
minated those who didn't really want to work. I can't begin to mention names, because I would certainly 
leave someone out. So to all the staff members who worked to make the Burr a success, my deepest 
thanks — and I hope the work on the Burr didn't ruin too many point averages. 

No one man in the University was of more help than the Burr's advisor, Professor Dario Politella. 
I more than appreciate his help and guidance, as well as the times when it was necessary for him to push 
us as much as possible. Without his help and suggestions, the Burr would lack many things. 

Yes, and there is my special thanks to the people who were not directly associated with the staff, 
but who did so much to help me personally when help was needed. These were the three or four people 
who were willing to put up with an editor's troubles, and then pitch in and help with the work when the 
staff couldn't get it done. 

The Burr is a good public relations book for the University, it competes and makes a favorable im- 
pression with other universities, and it is read by many parents, but there is only one sign of a successful 
yearbook. An All-American rating is a wonderful thing to receive in the yearly yearbook competition, and 
we have been shooting for one since we began planning the book last summer, but the only sign of a 
success is if the book is what KSU students want. From the start we have tried to keep the students, or 
at least a majority of them, in mind, and the book is produced for the Kent State University students and 
faculty, and with no other purpose in mind. 

We've increased the size by 32 pages, added color photos, produced a special case for the cover, and 
done everything possible to make the book more interesting for you, the students and faculty. 

We've tried to cover and include as many events as possible. Naturally some have been left out, but 
we have not meant to slight anyone. 

Copy is written, checked, and re-written, but still errors crop up, and we only hope we have not 
made any that are very serious, and if we have, our apologies because we certainly did not make them on 

Producing a yearbook takes a lot of time and patience as well as good photographs and top writing. 
We've tried to include both in the 1955 Chestnut Burr. We started last spring when we began taking 
pictures and talking ideas. Then during the summer the book was laid out and a dummy drawn up, and 
again, we talked over new ideas. 

Winter quarter, and we started moving. It was slow at first. The picture editor was sick the entire 
quarter, the chief-photographer was not in school, and it was a new staff with much of the load being 
carried by inexperienced people. Events were covered, pictures taken, stories written, and somehow the 
first of the copy went to the printer before Christmas vacation. 

Then we got some encouragement about the time Winter quarter began as our picture editor got off 
the sick list, our chief photographer returned to school, and by then the staff had fast become veterans. 
At last we moved into what I considered high gear as copy and pictures were sent on the way to the en- 
graver and printer and we began to check the first of the completed page proofs. Then, all at once it 
seemed the whole staff, from the editor on down, caught the flu, and we got behind in production. In 
the final weeks of the quarter we had to push it. The largest batch of pictures went to engraver and the 
greatest amount of copy went to the printers during finals week. 

While most of the staff was enjoying spring vacation, some of us had to keep going every day to 
finish the index. Now, in Spring quarter, this letter completes the copy, the pictures have all gone to 
the engraver, the covers are at the binders waiting to be bound around the pages, and there are only a 
few more pages to be marked with a final "OK". A person often wonders how the book ever gets fin- 
ished, but somehow it does. 

Thanks again to everyone for all the help and to the KSU students and faculty, we hope we have 
brought you the kind of yearbook that you want. 

The Editor
